Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education is a unique educational program which formally integrates academic learning with "real world" work experience. Students have the opportunity to apply classroom learning to professional employment directly related to their major and career goals. On campus, students attend a weekly seminar. Academic credit is awarded for all co-op experiences.

What Are The Benefits To Students?

  • To provide an opportunity to gain solid work experience while going to school.
  • To gain academic credit toward graduation.
  • To provide pre-professional experience to build your resume.
  • To begin developing a network of professional contacts that will prove helpful over the course of your career.
  • To increase self-confidence and success at school and at work.
  • To develop employment skills such as resume writing and interviewing skills.

How Can You Get Started?

Come to the Cooperative Education and Career Development Center and make an appointment to see a counselor. Current employment (if related to major) may also be considered for academic credit.
