The Co-op Program
The Political Science co‑operative program is offered to all full‑time students enrolled in the major and honours programs in the Department who meet the academic requirements for co‑op. Students interested in applying for the Political Science co‑op should refer to Institute for Co‑operative Education where a full description of the admission requirements is provided.
Academic content is identical to that of the regular programs, with some specific recommendations for courses to improve the students’ job skills. While most of the positions are in the Montreal area, students must be prepared to work in other parts of Canada.
Students are supervised personally and must meet the requirements specified by the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Institute for Co‑operative Education in order to continue their studies in the co‑op format.
Liaison between the student, the employers, and the Institute for Co‑operative Education is provided by the Political Science co‑op committee, which includes the student’s advisors.
Please refer to Institute for Co‑operative Education for additional information.

The Political Science C.Edge option is offered through the Institute for Co‑operative Education.

Students interested in applying for the C.Edge option should refer to Institute for Co‑operative Education where a full description is provided.
