Why Co-op?

Co-operative education is a unique program based on a partnership between the University of Toronto, the student, and the employer.

The Major (Co-op) Program in City Studies allows you to:
•    gain valuable work experience
•    identify a career path that best matches your interests and skills
•    apply theories and approaches you’ve learned in the classroom to real world problems
•    learn how to search for, apply for jobs, and get interviews
•    improve your interviewing skills and promote yourself to prospective employers
•    finance your education through paid work terms
•    explore career options and network with potential employers
•    gain a competitive edge when going out into the workforce after graduation

Practical work placements alternate with study terms. Work placements begin in January, May or September for 4 month work terms.
