Co-operative education integrates classroom learning with periods of paid work experience to enable students to apply their knowledge and skill. Co-op students receive credits toward their degree for successfully completed work terms.
Co-op students can assist an employer's short- or long-term needs by undertaking specific projects, or by providing general assistance to ease workload pressures on full-time employees. A wide range of employers, including large and small businesses, non-profit organizations and the public sector, hire co-op students. Through Emily Carr, employers have access to bright and talented art, design, and media students. As well, the experience allows an organization to recruit, train, and assess potential future employees.
Co-operative education is available to third and fourth year undergraduate students. Co-op placements can be part-time in summer, spring, and fall semesters. To post a co-op opportunity go to: Artswork Submission Guidelines
