The Theatre and Performance program does not have a Co-op option. However, Theatre and Performance majors may enrol in the Honours Theatre and Performance Arts and Business (Co-op) academic plan. For these students, Theatre and Performance is their chosen major and their co-op reports are handed in to Theatre and Performance.

Co-op reports are on the 10th day of classes in the term after your co-op term. Completed reports should be addressed to Dr. Jennifer Roberts-Smith and submitted via your Work Report course on LEARN.
