Co-Op Program

Co-operative Education is an optional program that integrates degree-relevant, paid work experience with academic study. MA Political Science students who participate in co-op apply newly developed skills in a practical context while building a network of professional contacts.

The SFU Co-op curriculum prepares students for the transition from the classroom to the workplace. Students learn valuable self-marketing skills, how to write effective resumes and cover letters, and enhance their interview skills. One-on-one support is available from co-op staff and students gain access to exclusive co-op postings.


  • Maintain a minimum SFU CGPA of 3.00;
  • Apply in the first or second semester of your degree.  

Before applying to the Arts co-op Program, MA Political Science students must meet with Eva Lewis, co-op coordinator, to discuss eligibility and program expectations. Please make an appointment with Eva via email or phone at or 778 782 5751.
