Students admitted to the Master of Arts program in a department with a co-operative education option may apply for admission to the Arts Co-operative Education Program. The Program helps prepare interested and qualified students for professional careers in government, the non-profit sector, and industry with at least four months of work placement supervised by practicing professionals. Faculty advisors also visit students at their place of work, where feasible, and provide advice on work term projects required of all students in the program.
Students who have been admitted into the Master of Arts program in a department with the co-op option must apply to the Arts Co-op Office early in their first term at UBC. Selection of students will be based on academic performance and general suitability to the work environment as determined by résumé and interview. The total enrolment will be subject to the availability of appropriate work placements and faculty advisors. The work placements are arranged by mutual agreement between students and employing organizations. Co-op courses are taken in addition to the courses needed to meet normal academic requirements. These courses do not count for credit toward the degree, but their completion will be noted on a student's academic record.
