The Political Science Co-operative Education Program (PSCE) provides an opportunity for students to obtain relevant full-time employment experience in fields related to Political Science, such as government, advocacy groups or political parties. Students apply their academic knowledge to practical situations. Candidates who are accepted into the PSCE must complete the normal requirements for their degree, as well as three full-time work terms.
At least one work term must occur in a fall or winter semester. The final work term must be completed before the final academic term. Competition for placements is heaviest in the Spring semester and students are strongly recommended to complete one Spring placement outside of the St. John's area. With permission a student may complete a maximum of two work terms in consecutive semesters.
