Cooperative Education (co-op) is a distinctive form of experiential education in which students alternate periods of academic study with 6-month periods of work experience in their field(s) of interest.
Students at Northeastern University with majors in Environmental Science or Environmental Studies may earn experiential education credit when they successfully complete the following components of the co-operative education learning model: preparation, activity, reflection.
Feel free to contact us and consult the Northeastern University Co-op pages for additional information.
