Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education is an integration of academic study and career-related work experience. It allows the student an opportunity to test career choices, gain work experience and even earn money as part of a college degree. Cooperative educational experiences are available in approved degree programs. Curriculum credit students must meet departmental criteria and enroll in a cooperative work experience course. For more information, students should contact Student Employment Services, or visit the Student Employment Services website at


An internship is a partnership between the student and a local employer that benefits both parties. The student can gain real world experience in their field of study while utilizing classroom knowledge. The employer can supplement their workforce with good employees and evaluate potential full-time hires at the same time. All internships should be paid and provide meaningful work experiences. Local employers often list internships with the college. SES has developed many tools to assist students in their search for internships. These include internship search engines, listings of companies
with internship programs and tips for success. For more information, contact Student Employment Services at
