Real-life learning through co-op
At UVic, learning extends beyond the classroom. Through co-operative education (co-op), you can alternate terms in class with paid work terms in positions related to your field of study.
You'll graduate with professional job search skills, work experience, contacts in your field, strategic professional development skills, a greater understanding on how you can apply your Anthropology degree in a career that is right for you and some extra cash in your pocket. UVic Co-op is a national leader in co-operative education: one in four UVic students take part in the program each year.
