Arts Co-op

In 2016-17, the Arts Co-op Program and the UBC Department of History began a pilot for a History PhD Co-op Program.

Through Co-op, PhD students will build valuable skills and experience that will extend and enrich their career options in both academic and alternative workplaces.

The History PhD Co-op program gives students the opportunity to:

  • Explore various career options and gain substantial experience to put on their resumes
  • Enrich academic learning with workplace experience
  • Develop their professional skills and network
  • Apply to positions that require students to be in a co-op program (such as federal government jobs and some positions in the cultural industries)
  • Finance their degrees with relevant, paid work
