Honours BSc (Physics Major) Co-operative Option

Co-operative Option Program
A cumulative average of 70% in all Physics courses is required.

Students satisfying all the requirements for the Honours BSc (Physics) program may elect to take the Co-operative Option, subject to the approval of the Department. In addition to the academic courses in the Honours BSc (Physics) program, four of the five co-operative work terms, denoted Physics 2990, 3990, 3992, 4990 and 4992, must be completed satisfactorily. The last term of the student's program must be an academic term and both fall and winter work terms must be included.

Departmental recommendations for work term placements will be made in the first three weeks of the academic term preceding one or more work terms. The University will provide employment counselling and contacts with participating employers for each student prior to each work period and will make all reasonable efforts to obtain placement. However, the achievement of employment is the result of a resumé and interview process and ultimate success in placement depends on the employer/employee interaction.
