Get Experience

There are MANY ways to get career-related experience during college.

Experiential learning allows students to apply knowledge to experience outside of the classroom. Students can gain practical experience in a variety of ways that can help build a resume for post-graduation employment or graduate school.
Cooperative Education and Internship Program

The Cooperative education (co-op)  and internship program provides an opportunity for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to career-related experiences and employment.

Benefits of cooperative education and internships include:

International Student Requirements:
International students may participate in the cooperative education and internship program by completing an application for Curricular Practical Training (CPT).
