CoOPERATIVE (Co-op) Course

Cooperative Education ("Co-op") is an academic focused program which allows students to obtain professional work experience while still in college. It is a unique opportunity for students to apply their academic preparation to "real world" situations and settings. Co-op programs provide students the opportunity to combine classroom study with periods of paid professional employment directly related to a student's major and career goals.
