Internships & Co-op
Career Services acts as a clearing house for advertising internships. Career Services does not administer formal internship programs nor offer academic credit for internships. Students and employers must coordinate this through the student's academic department. If you are considering a paid internship with academic documentation you may want to consider the cooperative education program outlined below.
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.
