Undergraduate Arts Co-op students work in a wide range of positions within the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Employers hire co-op students based on their skill-set and career interests; your major is only one of many factors. So the choice is really up to students, their interests, and current skill set.

Co-op students can expect a broad range of work, including:

  • Arts Administration
  • Communications & Social Media
  • Curatorial Assistance
  • Educational Programming
  • Environmental Assessment
  • Financial Analysis
  • Fundraising
  • GIS

In order to receive a Co-op designation on your UBC transcript, you need to complete 3 work terms. Work terms are 4 months in length. Depending on your program schedule, you may complete 2 consecutive 4-month work placements, 3 separate ones, or a combination.
