Cooperative Education is an academic program that allows students to connect academic knowledge with the business world through internships. Co-op allows students in the Elliott School of Communication to connect with professionals in the community while gaining real-world experience.
Benefits of participating in Co-op:
Flexible time commitment. Internships can be held for a summer or semester, which is determined by the employer.
Tailored to student's emphasis area. Co-op expands learning experiences through employment in a supervised, educational work setting.
Communication credit available through Co-op. Elliott School students work with a faculty member who serves as an academic advisor during the internship.
Paid internships are available. Students can have a paying job while receiving course credit.
Invaluable experience. Practical experience is gained in areas such as advertising, broadcast journalism, electronic media, marketing, print journalism, public relations and related media positions.
