The goal of the Biology Co-op program is to provide hands-on job experience for students enrolled in the Biology BSc or BSc Hons programs. The Co-op work terms may be at private companies, research institutions, government laboratories or universities. Some work terms may include field work.
The BSc or BSc Hons with Co-op designation includes 120 credit hours of courses and four work terms (each of four months duration). The course requirements and course credit hours are identical to those of a Biology BSc or BSc Hons degree.
The work terms will be graded on a Pass/Fail basis. Work terms must receive a grade of "Pass" in order to count towards the Co-op designation.
