    Double degree coop at Carleton

    The overall experience is good, except obviously hugely affected by the pandemic and shutdown. I am lucky enough to have predominately excellent professors who were very concerned about their students. But Carleton’s undergraduate-level classes, at least for my majors, are more theoretically-based. Personally, I prefer a more experiential and interactive class style. The co-op program is well-regulated. The employers are generally responsible. But as an international student, it is sometimes quite difficult to find a job. So better to start applying for openings from the very start.

    I really liked my post-graduate experience at Carleton University. There were many good teachers and I loved my program. Although it was intense and challenging, I learned a lot in the process. The professors are intelligent and know their stuff.

    Cognitive Science - Carleton University

    My program at Carleton University is cognitive science. The first year of CS is really general so it gives me the chance to find out my interest and narrow down what I want to do for the rest of my University years. Cognitive Science can be used with a lot of other programs, like computer science, business, psychology, etc. One thing about the school that I wish could be different is I wish I could be inside the classes studying synchronous courses. I have not explored the school as much to be able to determine how everything genuinely is in an in-person setting. I would recommend the school to others based on the academics I’ve explored so far. The teachers are professional, and the students I met have been very supportive. Right now I am unsure about my career prospects because of the generality of the program so far, but once I do a co-op placement I think I’ll be able to find more opportunities.

    Interesting

    Lectures so far are comprehensive. The school is sometimes draining, with a lot of studying. Meeting new people is really a great experience. Athletics is my favourite part, especially basketball. The environment is also nice

    Great Program with Passionate Professors

    The interdisciplinary aspect of my program allowed me to learn about a variety of exciting topics including history, geography, politics, economics and anthropology. You got to dip your toe in multiple specialities which made it easier to hone in on my own research interests. Overall, my professors were knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects, and it showed in their dedication to students’ learning. As I was in a smaller speciality (Latin American and Caribbean Studies), it was sometimes difficult to register for classes because of selective availability. The pandemic also resulted in many of my classes being shifted to online learning which made it more difficult to make friends and enjoy the student life provided by my university.

    Carleton University - BCom Program

    As a first-year student just having entered university in the midst of a global pandemic, it would be easy to quickly jump to the negative aspects of the online school year. However, the Commerce program at Sprott School of Business (Carleton) has in my opinion made an ample amount of compromises for their students. Business is a very communication-oriented, collaborative and interactive program. In the business world, you are constantly working with uncountable different personalities which you need to be prepared to adjust. As difficult as this can be online, my program has accommodated these needs in different and efficient ways. They have organized interactive workshops, provided us with collaborative opportunities with different business organizations, and directed us to available employment and volunteer options. The asynchronous classes leave room for flexibility in our busy time schedules, and so far most of the professors I have had this year have been helpful, thoughtful and enthusiastic about what they have taught. The school demonstrates internationality in the sense that it comprises a very diverse group of students, as well as provides multiple foreign language courses for those interested. In terms of career prospects, I do believe the Carleton business school provides students with a significant number of opportunities- one of these being a mandatory course every business student takes called: Employability Passport. This course devotes all of its attention to preparing students for their future careers. You learn tips and tricks to master your resume and cover letters, complete volunteer work/workshops that are very beneficial for your resume, and build networks. I am only a first-year student, but I feel pretty confident in this school and program so far, and would definitely recommend it to others.

    Sprott School of Business

    I thoroughly enjoy the variety of courses offered within my program. The Carleton Sprott School of Business allows commerce majors to attain full knowledge of the different aspects of business. This includes courses such as information technology, supply chain management, marketing and entrepreneurship. Aside from giving students the opportunity to learn about distinct aspects of business, students are also given the option to select a distinct path by selecting a concentration (marketing, finance, accounting, international business, etc.). In addition, my programme offers real-world experience through a plethora of job, co-op and internship opportunities; furthermore, various workshops focused on networking, resumes and cover letters are made available to students. Nevertheless, one area where my programme could improve is the student-advisor relationship. Often, it is difficult to contact advisors and to even receive a straightforward answer. However, I am aware that the pandemic has had a detrimental effect on the efficiency of this communication and I look forward to major improvements in the upcoming semester. I thoroughly enjoy my selected programme and I am confident that other students would likely see the Sprott School of Business as an institution of development and opportunity.

    Carleton, A University

    Carleton is a great University. Some profs are amazing and some found their degree in a cereal box. The campus is quite nice, much better than that maze downtown. And the tunnels are amazing come Wintertime. The only real issue is the amount of construction. Also, our mascot is amazing. What even is a Geegee?

    Nothing Special - Not Surprised

    Overall my experience at Carleton “studying” Communications and Media has been lacklustre, to say the least, but this is to be expected as academia is just an overpriced meatgrinder system void of passion, interest or creativity. These problems, unfortunately, stem from low quality primary and secondary education, and this isn’t just a problem in Canada; it’s all over the world. These two stars can really apply to any post-secondary institution (which is extremely generous), aside from the top most accredited ones because businesses think they give fancier diplomas. I’m not sure this review is productive in any way other than stating what has already been said, so I’ll leave it at that.

    Well Set Up for Success

    My experience at Carleton University has been excellent. There are lots of clubs and societies to join which have helped me make friends and discover new interests. Professors and other faculty are warm, helpful, and accessible. Most of all, I felt as though the university set me up for success. The student supports and academic advising led to me doing much better than I expected.
