|Title||Graduate Co-op Programs in the Faculty of Arts|
In 1999, the Faculty of Arts began a co-operative education program for undergraduate students in the B.A., B.F.A., and B.Mus programs. The Program has grown to meet student and employer demand. With its growth have come demands from graduate students in Arts for similar co-op opportunities. We are asking the TLEF for funding to hire a staff person to start graduate co-op programs for three specific Masters programs: the Master of Arts (Asia Pacific Policy Studies), Master of Arts (European Studies), and the Masters in Library, Archival, and Information Studies.
The coordinator would also assess the interests of line departments within the Faculty and make recommendations for the implementation of graduate co-op programs in them. This request is in keeping with Trek 2000’s goal of offering co-op and/or internship opportunities in all Faculties at UBC, and to offering interactive learning opportunities to all UBC students. We also expect co-op opportunities to enhance the international experience of the students in the European Studies and Asia Pacific Policy Studies programs.
