Internships can be formal, for-credit opportunities for our students that integrate classroom theory with work experience. Internships can also be not-for-credit opportunities for our students wishing to have more than one internship experience. If you have an internship opportunity, please submit your information here.
Co-ops are formal, accredited academic programs that integrate classroom theory with work experience. In the typical co-op experience, students alternate semesters of work and study, beginning the summer after their freshman year in their desired field. The student completes a minimum of two and a maximum of four co-op semesters. Degrees are typically completed in five years with the equivalent of at least one year of meaningful, real-world, on-the-job experience. Co-op experiences are limited. If you have an interest in working with our students, please submit your information here.
