Arts Administration Specialization
The Faculty of Arts offers students in Applied Studies Co-op the opportunity for academic and practical training in Arts Administration as an integral part of their Honours Co-op program. In conjunction with their academic program, students in Arts Administration complete four (of six) co-op work-term placements in performing and visual arts organizations throughout Canada.
As part of the Applied Studies Co-op program, students in the Arts Administration Specialization complete a minimum of 42 term courses, of which 14 to 20 are in the Honours major discipline, 8 to 10 are in Applied Studies, and 6 are Arts Administration courses. The remaining 8 to 14 term courses are electives. Students must maintain an overall average of 75% in their Honours major and in their Applied Studies courses.

International Trade Specialization
The globalization of the world economy, coupled with the accelerated process of economic integration, implies that Canada will increasingly demand people with education and skills in areas related to international trade. As an integral part of the Applied Studies Co-op program in the Faculty of Arts, the Specialization provides students with a broadly-based education in the liberal arts combined with courses targeted to international trade.
As part of their chosen Applied Studies Co-op program, students must successfully complete 11 term courses, divided between required and elective courses. An overall average of 75% must be maintained in the Applied Studies courses and that of 70% in International Trade.
In conjunction with the academic program, students will normally complete four (of six) co-op work-term placements with companies and organizations which concentrate in the area. The final two work terms are planned to occur abroad.
Enrolment in the Specialization is limited. Students enter the program in the 2A term through a process of formal application and personal interview.
