Cooperative Education, or Co-op, is an academic program in which students combine academic study with a career-related work experience in business, industry, government, education, or service organizations. The program is called Cooperative Education because universities and employers work together to provide a unique and exceptional learning venture for students.
Co-op work experiences are an integral part of a student's education and supplement academic study with opportunities for professional development. Work experiences are closely related to the student's major field of study. Co-op opportunities are everywhere throughout the US and even internationally.
