Learn to work. Work to learn.
As an Emily Carr student, you can integrate periods of paid work with classroom learning through the Co-operative Education program.
By applying your knowledge and skills, you’ll get a paycheque and the opportunity to jumpstart your career. Plus, co-op students receive credits for successfully completed work terms. You will undertake specific projects or provide general assistance to ease workload pressures at professional places of employment including large and small businesses, non-profit, and public sector organizations.
Co-op employers that access bright and talented art, design, and media students often offer employment after graduation. Co-operative education is available to third and fourth year undergraduate students. Co-op placements can be full-time or part-time in summer, spring, and fall semesters.
You will work with the Career + Professional Development Office to pursue opportunities. See examples of our industry partnerships there.
