Internships & Cooperative Education

Experiential learning takes place when students “learn by doing”.

Through a three-way partnership between the student, the university, and the 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 is located in Bernard Hall 318.


The Office of Internships and Cooperative Education:

  • connects students with access to experiential learning opportunities, such as internships, cooperative education, job shadowing, and micro-internships
  • offers career coaching and professional job seeking skill development for UCA freshmen, sophomores, and juniors
