Explore our Career, Co-op and Internship Programs

The Science Co-op and Internship Programs offers our undergraduate and professional masters student the opportunity to participate in paid work experience as part of their degrees.

Studies show that co-op students gain employment sooner after graduation, have higher salaries, and are more likely to find employment related to their degree area than non-co-op graduates.

How is it different?

After successfully completing the Science Internship Program, students graduate with a Science Internship designation on their degree parchment and transcript. In the process of securing a position, students are able to learn valuable job-seeking skills, including writing resumes and interviewing. Completing the program provides students with the advantage of obtaining several work references in their field and creating a career network prior to graduation.  The Science Internship program provides assistance in securing jobs and standing out from other recent graduates!
