CO 301 - Co-Op I


This course is one of two co-operative education (co-op) courses that are available for students as an elective in the sophomore or junior years of their bachelor’s degree. The co-op experience is similar to an externship taken at the end of a program but is experienced earlier in the degree program. The intent is to give the student a taste of the professional world earlier in their degree work. Like an externship, the students will participate in an eight-week “on-the-job” experience, where they will participate as a temporary employee within an organization. Classroom topics will cover communication within the organization, organizational missions and cultures, employee etiquette, and current issues that occur in the workplace. Students will be evaluated by both faculty and the supervisor from the sponsor organization. The co-operative education courses may be taken singularly, in series, or concurrently in the same academic period, depending on whether a student wishes a part-time or full-time experience. 3.00 semester credit hours Contact Hours: 135.00 Prerequisite: None Corequisite: None.
