Potential co-op employers

The smart choice!

Our co-op students can provide you and your business with a wide range of employment options in the fields of sociology, psychology, political science, geography, environmental studies, economics and anthropology. They can take on short-term tasks with enthusiasm and energy, contribute their skills to ongoing projects, or lend relief to your regular staff during peak periods. They can also provide you with a cost-effective way to evaluate potential future employees, without making a long-term hiring commitment.

If you would like to participate with UVic in an integrated approach to higher education that enables students to alternate academic terms with paid, relevant work experience in their chosen field, make the smart choice and hire a social sciences co-op student.
