In Arts & Science Co-op, you'll follow either a Specialist program, a Double Major program or a Major with two minors, leading to a four-year degree. This is comprised of 20 full-credit equivalents (FCEs).
In addition to completing the academic component of your degree, you’ll complete at least four co-op courses and spend eight to 12 months in jobs – called co-op work terms – that are relevant to your program of study.
For most programs, you’ll follow the same academic program of requirements as your non-co-op peers. However, some programs have specific additional course and timing requirements that are outlined in the Academic Calendar.
This is where you determine the recommended course load when you register for the co-op program.
