Co-op and careers
The geography department has been a leader and participant in co-op education at UVic for almost 30 years.
Co-op allows you to alternate your academic studies with paid, relevant work experience in your field of study. Work-terms can take place public and private sectors, with many opportunities based in local, provincial, or federal government departments.
