Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM):
Co-operative education is a unique educational experience offered as a 2 credit or a 4 credit program. It promotes skill development, career development, and self-awareness through hands-on experience. Co-operative education develops the ‘whole person’ by bridging the gap between classroom study and the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the world of work. The student is able to combine classroom learning with practical experience in a career field that he or she is interested in. Bethune co-op students have had placement opportunities in hospitals, police services, auto body and mechanic shops, fire department, elementary schools, retail, hospitality services and more. Co-op education is a great opportunity for all students who have successfully completed 16 credits or more.
