Co-op: An Education like no other


The university’s cooperative (“co-op”) education program lets students alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time employment in positions related to their major or career interests.

Co-op gives you real world experience and puts classroom learning to the test. It sets you on the right path towards a successful career and to becoming a global citizen in a global economy.
