Work-based Learning/Cooperative Education (Co-op)

Work-based learning is an academic class commonly called co-op. Instead of attending class in a traditional classroom, students work with an employer in a position directly related to their field of study. Work-based learning is similar to an internship, but students receive academic credit either as an elective or as a required class.

Work-based learning/co-op is available in over 40 programs of study at CPCC. Please contact a Coordinator at one of our six campuses for more information.

 

We look forward to putting your education to work!
