Co-op in Master of Science in Applied Mathematics & Statistics
Acadia University’s Co-op Program is nationally accredited and integrates study terms with paid, discipline-related work terms. Co-op students in the Master of Science in Applied Mathematics & Statistics program complete one 4-month work term with an optional second. Students apply to Co-op at the beginning of their 1st year. All Co-op students participate in mandatory professional development workshops and receive one-on-one coaching in resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, and workplace professionalism. Each work term is a non-credit course with applicable tuition fees.
In Mathematics & Statistics, having work experience upon graduation provides a distinct competitive advantage. Applying knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, students gain hands-on experience in their discipline. Co-op helps students determine their strengths and interests while exploring different work environments and test-driving potential careers. Employers from across Canada hire Co-op students to work on special projects and assist during peak periods while often evaluating them for future hire.
