Co-operative educational work-terms are an integral and necessary component of the Honours Biology & Pharmacology degree. Science Co-operative Education is the product of a dynamic partnership between McMaster University, its students, and co-operative employers. In this educational process, students earn their degree by alternating academic terms with periods of related work experience.

Students frequently encounter educational, personal and career-related experiences that cannot be provided in the normal university setting. Work term placements are usually available in academic, governmental and industrial settings.

Each student completes sixteen months of co-operative experience during the course of the program.
