What is cooperative education (co-op)?
Cooperative Education is a unique plan of educational enrichment that is designed to make students' educational programs more relevant and meaningful by integrating formal academic study with practical work experience. Through co-op experiences, students' classroom learning is supported by opportunities to work in jobs directly related to their academic and career goals.
