Both the Recreation and Sport diploma and the Tourism diploma require that students complete two paid cooperative education placements. In the third year of the Recreation and Tourism Management degree, students have the option of completing one more paid placement or a high level internship. These placements offer our students the unique opportunity to put their learning to work and end the "no experience without a job, no job without experience" cycle.

For further information on Co-ops, please contact Brook Pearce, Experiential Learning Coordinator or Jackie Oncescu, Department Advisor.
