Careers and Internships

All of the programs within the Department of Recreation and Tourism Management enable students to get experience in the field. This is done primarily through our Cooperative Education program. Students in the diplomas complete two cooperative education work terms and students who complete the degree complete either another coop placement or an internship.

Here is further information about Cooperative Education. Please contact us if you would like a review of or copy of this year's co-op report.
