Cooperative Education/Internship Work Experiences

Clark College recognizes the value to students of actual experience in a work environment and has developed a nationally recognized program which allows credits to be earned for that experience under controlled conditions.

The purpose of Cooperative Education Work Experience (co-op) is to provide on-the-job experience that complements students’ academic career goals and that furnishes an opportunity for career exploration. Co-op involves the faculty, student, and employer in determining learning objectives and evaluating the student’s progress in achieving those objectives. Students may use internship experiences to test their interest in a field or their fit in the work environment of a particular industry.
