**Program Requirements **

Students must complete the program requirements as described in the Specialist Program in Mathematics.

**Co-op Work Term Requirements**

Students must satisfactorily complete three Co-op work terms, each of four-months duration. To be eligible for their first work term, students must be enrolled in the Specialist (Co-op) Program in Mathematics and have completed at least 10.0 credits.

In addition to their academic program requirements, Co-op students complete up to five Co-op specific courses. These courses are designed to prepare students for their job search and work term experience, and to maximize the benefits of their Co-op work terms. They cover a variety of topics intended to assist students in developing the skills and tools required to secure work terms that are appropriate to their program of study, and to perform professionally in the workplace. These courses must be completed in sequence, and are taken in addition to a full course load. They are recorded on transcripts as credit/no credit (CR/NCR) and are considered to be additive credit to the 20.0 required degree credits. No additional course fee is assessed as registration is included in the Co-op Program fee.

*Co-op Preparation Course Requirements:*

1. COPD01H3 – Foundations for Success in Arts & Science Co-op

- Current UTSC students entering Co-op in April/May will complete this course in the summer term

- Current UTSC students entering Co-op in July/August will complete this course in the fall term

2. COPD03H3 – Preparing to Compete for your Co-op Work Term

- This course will be completed eight months in advance of the first scheduled work term

3. COPD11H3 – Managing your Work Term Search & Transition to Work

- Prerequisite: COPD03H3

5. COPD13H3 – Integrating Your Work Term Experience Part II

Students must be available for work terms in each of the Fall, Winter and Summer sessions and must complete at least one of their required work terms in either a Fall or Winter session. This in turn requires that students take courses during at least one Summer session.
