What Is a Cooperative Education Internship? 

Cooperative Education (Co-Op) internships create educational partnerships among Montana State University Billings, the business community, and students.

This unique academic program allows students to earn academic credit, and often a wage, while combining classroom learning with practical work experience.

By participating in a Co-Op Ed internship you will:

  • Earn credit toward your degree.
  • Put theory into practice
  • Work side-by-side with professionals in your field.
  • “Test drive” different careers.
  • Build a strong résumé.
  • Develop a network of contacts in your chosen career field for future opportunities and references.
  • Have the potential to earn a salary.
  • Receive personal assistance throughout the internship process.
  • Visit Library 100 to learn more!

In 2013-14, 196 students earned 811 CE credits, and paid interns earned an average wage of $13.48/hr.  Find out how you can earn & learn, too! 

Please review Workers' Compensation & insurance guidelines for student interns.
