Psychology (Co-op) (PSYC:C)

Department of Psychology, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

Co-operative Education formally integrates the student's academic study with 3 work terms (COOP*1000, COOP*2000, COOP*3000) in co-operating employer organizations. The 3rd work term is taken concurrently with the senior co-op project course, PSYC*4910. The Co-op program is offered as a B.A. honours program major degree taken as one of two major options combined with 3 work terms. One of the options is recommended for Co-op students expecting to apply for admission to graduate studies in Psychology. (See Graduate Advisory Note.)

All Co-op students are strongly advised to complete the B.A. requirements by including in their program 3 or more courses from the listing of courses under Business Administration, to ensure that they have 1 or more courses in computer science, accounting and management, or organizational behaviour. (Business Administration is also available as a minor.) Although not required, Co-op students are strongly encouraged to select a minor as part of the program.

Depending on career aspirations, students should have a good working knowledge of one or more of the following before their first work semester: psychological measurement, quantitative methods, computer science, accounting and management, or organizational behaviour.

The first work term normally follows 3 or 4 semesters of academic study (see Section X--Co-operative Education Programs). Students must be eligible to continue in the Honours Psychology program in order to remain in the Co-op program.

Admission to the Co-op program is limited and will be based on academic background. Admission will normally be considered only at semester 1 entry or during semester 2 when the student selects courses for semester 3.

The following Co-op schedule of studies is for students not intending to apply for admission to graduate programs in Psychology (includes 3 work terms).

Note: When selecting core and elective credits the student should keep in mind the prerequisites for their desired 3000 and 4000 level courses. When selecting courses beyond Psychology the student should keep in mind both their second specialization and courses appropriate for potential work-term placements.
