Cooperative Education is an experiential learning activity comprised of a three-way partnership between students, the university, and an employer.
These experiences permit students to enhance skills and knowledge obtained in the classroom, solidify career decisions, gain work experience and develop career related networks. Many of these experiences offer payment opportunities and/or academic credit.
The Office of Cooperative Education, located in Bernard Hall room 318, supports the academic internship programs and is responsible for approving Curricular Practical Training for international students. Cooperative Education works with employers to develop additional work opportunities which meet the requirements for these programs. Career coaching and professional job seeking skill development are available for students.
