Student group internship

Learn on the job

Classes and projects offer some great experience to put on your résumé. Internships and cooperative education programs give you practical work experience related to your major and a strong competitive advantage. Internships are usually one summer of supervised work experience related to your chosen career field. Cooperative Education (co-op) is a longer-term employment commitment of a full-time summer–fall or spring–summer. These experiential learning programs help foster your professional, personal and skill development, and on top of that, they’re usually paid! Experiential learning is a key element to transitioning from school-to-work. Check your academic department’s website about earning academic credit for internships.

4+1 = bachelor’s + master’s

Looking for higher education opportunities? Accelerated programs offer high-achieving students the opportunity to combine advanced undergraduate coursework with graduate coursework to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as five years – four years of bachelor’s study plus one year of master’s study! It is a cost-effective way to gain additional technical depth and specialization that can lead to expanded career opportunities as well as preparation for doctoral studies.
