Arts Co-op Majors

With more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the Faculty of Arts is the largest and most diverse faculty at Laurier. The 11 departments and interdisciplinary programming span a number of fields in the social sciences and humanities.

Students often take the majors below in combination with a second major, such as Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Medieval Studies or Women & Gender Studies. Arts co-op is available to honours students at the Waterloo Campus in the following majors:

*Geography is available as both a BA and a BSc.

**Students in English or Film Studies: If you intend to participate in the Vancouver Film School Pathway, you will not be eligible for co-op, because the VFS Pathways program requires you to relocate to Vancouver before the end of your first work term and limits your employment options for your second work term.


“My abstract understanding of international development has transformed into real-world insights about humanitarian work, public policy and foreign aid, through my co-op experience at War Child Canada.”
