Cooperative Education Program

What is Cooperative Education?   

The WNMU Cooperative Education Program, or what is commonly referred to as "Co-op," provides students with a unique opportunity to combine real work experience with their academic studies. Co-op students work as paid professionals in positions that are degree and career related.  Co-op allows students to "try out" a field and gain relevant work experience, as well as college credit. (Students can earn up to 6 elective credit hours).

Benefits of Co-op

  Identify career options
  Earn money as you gain valuable hands-on experience
  Connect the classroom with what's needed on the job
  Establish professional contacts
