Certificate in Cooperative Education
This supplemental 25-unit certificate program is designed to give students within the university the opportunity to develop educational objectives and career opportunities. Enrollment in the cooperative education colloquium course is a requirement for all students and is used as the basis for evaluation of student potential and interest. The certificate indicates to the employer that the university validates the student's work experience in cooperative education and substantiates the experience as professional development and job training. Students receive academic credit and salaried compensation while enrolled and employed. Employment opportunities shall be provided to qualified students within the program and shall have academic relevance to the student's major course of study.
Students who complete the certificate program typically have greater employment options and salary benefits. Students who complete 1,052 hours in a cooperative education placement with the federal government receive a non-competitive permanent placement status with the employing agency or affiliated branch agencies. Cooperative education placements also lead to permanent job placements with private sector employers, better starting salaries, and better entry-level positions.
