Co-op and Management Options

Students enrolled in the Health Sciences program may apply for the Co-op and Management Options.

Co-op provides an opportunity for students to integrate their academic studies with work experience in participating organizations. Admission to this limited enrolment program is competitive and is based on academic record, recent work and volunteer experience, extracurricular activities and interview performance. Science co-op students normally complete two work terms of at least 10 weeks each, usually in the summers following their second and third years.

The Management Option provides fundamental training in key areas of business such as the theories and process of management, marketing, finance, accounting, organizational behaviour, microeconomics and macroeconomics. It totals ten half-credit courses, six required and four elective, which are normally included in the 20 credits required for a degree. Students typically register for the Management Option at the end of their second year.
