DescriptionEconomics may be a specialized area of knowledge, but it is relevant to almost every aspect of our lives. At its core, it is the study of reasoned choice in the context of scarce resources and competing interests. The need to make such choices pervades the day-to-day lives of all of us—as individuals and in society as a whole.

Students in the Honours program, who are eligible to work in Canada, can apply for admission to the co-op program either at the time they apply for admission to Carleton or after they have begun their program. Students will be eligible for a co-op placement after second year and after they have met all requirements for the co-operative education option specified in the Carleton University Undergraduate Calendar.

The normal requirement for the co-op notation on your transcript is the satisfactory completion of three work terms. Each term is normally four months in duration. Co-op work terms provide you with an opportunity to integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of your studies, and to work in government, non-profit or private-sector organizations.
