      What are Internships and Co-ops?

      An internship is a "real world" work experience in a field or industry related to your major or career goals which provides experience to enhance your professional portfolio.

      Types of internships:

          • part-time during the school year
          • full-time during summer or breaks
          • paid or unpaid for units
          • simply for valuable experience in a field of interest

      A Cooperative Educational experience (Co-op) is similar, but is a bit more specific and is geared to business, technical, or governmental careers.

      How will an Internship or Co-op help me?

      • You will be a stronger candidate for jobs and grad school
      • You will have a better understanding of your chosen career path  
      • Employers look for candidates with internship experience
