Cooperative Education/Internship Experiences

The cooperative education (co-op) program provides opportunities for students to supplement coursework with practical work experiences related to their career objectives. Faculty advisors related to the student’s program of study are assigned to mentor each student. Students earn academic credit for their participation at an outside work site by setting and completing learning objectives or projects that expand their knowledge of their field. The credits earned can fulfill requirements for the student’s program of study or can be used as electives, depending upon the college major selected by the student. Co-op credits also serve to document career-related experience when students apply for admission to specific or competitive majors or programs at the university level. For more information, contact the Career and Cooperative Education office on either the Sierra Vista or Douglas campus.
