There are four ways York students can participate in C4.
They differ from one another in timing, length, credits, and type of partner engagement.
See below to choose the right C4 journey for you.
C4 Program Options
3.0: 6 weeks in Summer or
12 weeks in School Year
- Up to forty undergraduates who are new to C4 work intensively over a semester on one big, complex, multi-disciplinary project, pitched by a single off-campus partner. Students are broken up into sub-teams and managed by up to ten C4 alumni and graduate students who are registered in the C4 Management program.
- This is a finishing program for C4 alumni and graduate students. Up to ten students are given the opportunity to lead a team of up to forty undergraduates who are registered in C4 Launchpad. Together, they will work intensively over a semester on one big, complex, multidisciplinary project, pitched by a single off-campus partner.
6.0: 24 weeks in School Year
- As a fusion of a traditional placement course with C4 Odyssey, this year-long course enables multi-disciplinary teams to engage in a project-based placement. Teams of 4 to 6 students work closely with a partner on a complex project that will generate significant change within their organization.
- This year-long course is student-driven, multi-disciplinary, and socially-engaged. It is for students who want to own the whole process-from research to project management to outcomes. Teams of 5 to 10 students lead their own projects to address complex challenges that are pitched by partners and supported by on- and off-campus mentors.
