What is Cooperative Education Work Experience?
The Cooperative Education Work Experience program establishes a three-way relationship between the student, the college, and an employer. This structured relationship allows the student to create short and long-range career goals and to recognize his/her progress by establishing three measurable learning objectives for the semester.
Cooperative Education provides a practical learning model for students and helps them prepare for their future careers through the integration of on-the-job learning experiences and academic classroom lessons. By integrating both study and work, each area should become more relevant, interesting, and rewarding.
- Students must be currently employed or have an arranged internship (internship listing available).
- Students must be employed a minimum of 5 to 20 hours per week during the semester.
- Students must attend 3 workplace success seminars.
