Housing and Real Estate Management (Co-op)

Department of Consumer Studies, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

A principal aim of the Co-op program is to facilitate the transition of students from academic studies to a professional career in housing and real estate management by enhancing the integration of theory and practice.

The Co-op program consists of one four month and one eight month work term. The first work term begins after the second year and extends from September to December. The second work term commences after the third year of studies and extends from January to August. The Co-op program is normally completed over a 5 year period.

To be eligible to continue in the Co-op Major students must maintain a satisfactory average, must complete all course requirements as scheduled and must obtain a minimum evaluation of "satisfactory" on all required work term reports. Consult the Co-op advisor or Department for additional information.
