Cooperative Education (Co-Op) is geared toward students in their freshman or sophomore year. Juniors and seniors may take the course, however the job MUST relate to their major. Co-Op provides a beneficial three-way partnership between the employer, the student, and the University, creating the opportunity to apply classroom learning to practical problems on the job. This course allows students to work in their field or a professional environment as they prepare to enter the workforce.
