What is an internship?
An internship provides you with practical work experience in your chosen field. Its duration may be one semester, a summer, or an agreed-upon length of time between the student, employer, and school. Internships are primarily single, planned educational experiences for students. You may receive academic credit or a grade for your internship work and internships may be paid or unpaid.
What is a co-op?
A co-op (or cooperative education) is a full-time, in-depth, paid work experience directly related to a student’s major and completed during two or more semesters that alternate with academic semesters. Co-op opportunities are frequently found in the fields of engineering, computer science, business, art and design, basic sciences and agriculture.
Careers2Geaux offers a variety of internship and co-op opportunities for which students may apply, but the number and types of internships available to students extend far beyond the postings found there. Following are websites that can assist in your search.
