Co-operative Education

Co-op education is at the forefront in experiential learning at Memorial University.

Memorial’s co-operative education programs are the largest in Atlantic Canada: graduating over 8,000 students into rewarding careers worldwide. Employers benefit each year with access to over 1,500 well-rounded students eager to put their skills to work.

The university's highly successful programs offer a combination of classroom study and work term placements in local, national and international businesses and organizations. The goal is to fuse academic knowledge with practical experience, creating highly qualified and knowledgeable professionals prepared to meet the demands of today’s workforce.

Science students can participate in graduate level co-operative education through the Department of Psychology's Master of Applied Psychological Science (MAPS) and through the Master of Science (Computer Science) co-operative degree program. Co-operative graduate degrees are also available in the interdisciplinary programs of Scientific Computing (formerly Computational Science) and Environmental Science offered by the Faculty of Science.
