Undergraduate Arts Co-op students work in a wide range of positions within the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Employers hire co-op students based on their skill-set and career interests; your major is only one of many factors. So the choice is really up to students, their interests, and current skill set.
Co-op students can expect a broad range of work, including:
- Arts Administration
- Communications & Social Media
- Curatorial Assistance
- Educational Programming
- Environmental Assessment
- Financial Analysis
In order to receive a Co-op designation on your UBC transcript, you need to complete 3 work terms. Work terms are 4 months in length. Depending on your program schedule, you may complete 2 consecutive 4-month work placements, 3 separate ones, or a combination.
