Cooperative Ed & Internships

Cooperative Education is a great way for students to garner hands-on experience while earning college credit! This supervised work experience is related to the student’s career goals and is an extension and application of their classroom instruction. A faculty coordinator, Career Services, and the employer/supervisor share in the intellectual and professional development of the student, which ultimately benefits all involved. Only Newman University students are eligible to participate in this program.
