Therapeutic Recreation, Co-op

SydneyWhat I like best about my program

I like how my program is a close-knit community with professors who want to support you and learn with you, and fellow classmates who are like-minded and enthusiastic individuals. I like how I can try out opportunities in the field with hands-on experience through the practicum placement and internship (and co-op opportunities).
