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.
