Cooperative Education Program
(not a field of concentration)
Cooperative Education is a nationally recognized educational plan that integrates academic study with paid, real world work experience. UM-Dearborn cooperates with business, industry, government and other private and public agencies to offer work assignments related to students' educational programs and career objectives.
Students may earn a maximum of 10 S/E credit hours through co-op work assignments of one to three credit hours each, and a mandatory one credit-hour seminar. Students should be aware that applying for co-op does not guarantee job placement. Liberal arts students are advised to use curriculum electives to acquire the technical skills needed to improve their marketability and to avail themselves of career counseling available through the Career Services Office.
For eligibility information, see Cooperative Education in Special Programs, or contact the Cooperative Education Office, Room 1038 CB, 313-593-5188.
