Work-Based Learning (Cooperative Education)

Work-Based Learning (Co-op) is a curriculum course that can provide on-the-job work experience for students enrolled in eligible programs. Students work in jobs related to their program of study and receive course credit for the learning that takes place on the job.

Not all programs have Work-Based Learning as an option and there are requirements that students must meet prior to enrolling in a WBL course. Work-Based Learning options for eligible programs are listed in each program of study.

For additional information, students may contact Jean Lane in Career Services or their faculty advisor.

To schedule an appointment with Jean Lane to discuss Work-Based Learning, call 828-327-7000, ext. 4812, email or stop by the Career Center, which is located in the Student Center across from The Campus Store.
