Cooperative Education provides:
- Meaningful Experience
Cooperative Education at QCC will give you the chance to work in your field - in time to make meaningful adjustments to your academic and career plans. Because you work full- or part-time in a job directly related to your major, you gain professional experience that makes you more competitive in the job market. In fact, many co-op jobs turn into full time jobs after graduation.
- Academic Credit
Cooperative Education at QCC is an academic program. You can earn 3-6 academic credits for co-op toward your QCC degree. Co-op students are required to work 15-20 hours per week in a job related to their academic program. If you are already working in your field, your job may be appropriate for co-op.
