Cooperative Education and Internships offer qualifying students the opportunity to examine their chosen field first hand. Cooperative Education opportunities allow students to have a paid work experience while earning academic credit. These opportunities require the approval of a faculty advisor. Internship experiences may be paid or unpaid and range from short-term projects to full-time work assignments lasting the length of a term. Both programs enable you to apply the theories you have learned to work situations and to obtain valuable on-the-job experience. Interested students should contact career services for full information.

Internships vs. Co-ops

What is the difference between an internship and a co-op?

Internships are:

  • Full time work experiences during the summer semester
  • Part-time work experiences during the fall and winter semesters.
  • Paid or unpaid
  • Credit or not credit-bearing
  • Focused on upper-class students with a satisfactory grade point average

    Co-ops are

    • Typically full-time, six-month work experiences
    • Usually paid and credit-bearing
    • Students are not usually taking classes at the time
    • Focused on upper-class students with a satisfactory grade point average and a declared major.

    Both programs enable students to apply the theories learned to work situations and to obtain valuable on-the-job experience. Interested students should contact the career services office.
