Academic Internship/Cooperative Education

Academic Internship/Cooperative Education courses are unique opportunities for “hands-on” job experience with directed academic learning. The program features cooperation between the University and employers in the Puget Sound community. Students may also participate in an academic internship experience internationally when arranged and approved through the Wang Center for Global Education. Internships are posted on the Career Connections website. Students may develop their own internships that are approved by the appropriate academic parties.

Students gain an appreciation of the relationship between theory and application, and learn firsthand about new developments in a particular field. An academic internship experience enables students to become aware of the changing dimesions of work.
