Internships & Co-op
An internship is a form of experiential learning which provides students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths. Internships also provide employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent for their future workforce needs.
Cooperative Education (Co-op)
Co-op is an educational partnership between the University and employer that allows current students to engage in a paid training experience related to their major and is administered by Career Services. Co-op is a cost-effective way to recruit from a pre-screened candidate pool and permits evaluation of potential hires without long-term commitment. Co-op may be a one or multi-semester commitment from the employer and the student.
