Communication Co-op Program

What Is Co-op?

Co-op in the field of communication is an opportunity to build your skills, gain industry experience, and get paid while you complete your degree. Explore career options in communications, digital marketing, event planning, social media, community engagement, public relations and more. Compete for real jobs and work full-time for four or eight months at a time. From tech startups to non-profit organizations to government, employers come to SFU Co-op specifically to hire communication students.

Why Co-op?

Communication co-op alumni say their participation in their co-op gave them a competitive advantage when looking for work. Many were employed within three months of graduating after completing their co-op terms. If you do co-op, you will graduate with an entire year of work experience! Plus, you'll earn competitive wages, build your resume, and connect with industry employers.
