Honours BASc (Environmental Sustainability Major) Co-op Option(O)

Five Year program
Continuation in the Co-op Option will be contingent on maintaining an overall average of 70% in each term. A Co-op student who obtains less than a 70% average for the course work of any term or who fails any course may be placed on probation for the following academic term. A student who does not remove the probationary standing by the end of the next academic term will be dismissed from the Co-op Option. A Co-op student who fails the year will be dismissed from the Co-op Option. Work term credits are not applicable towards the completion of the non co-op HBASc Environmental Sustainability degree.

Graduation from the Co-operative Option of the HBASc in Environmental Sustainability requires, in addition to all academic requirements, satisfactory completion of Environmental Sustainability 1913, 2913, 3913 and 4913 (see course descriptions for further details). Students unable to complete all co-op placements will graduate with a non co-op degree.

Students in the Co-op Option are not guaranteed work term positions. Placements are posted in the Employment and Co-operative Education Centre; students must apply. Employers make decisions on a competitive basis.
