GLOBAL CO-OP Information and Links


If you want to do a Global Co-op, you will work directly with your regular co-op faculty coordinator, AND a representative from GEO (with visas, pre-departure, etc). The earlier you start working with your coordinator, the better.

Be sure you are enrolled in our CSSH Global Co-op Preparation Class in Blackboard. You can ask your coordinator to do this.
