Cooperative Education

A Key Component to the Experiential Liberal Arts

In the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, cooperative education—or co-op for short—is a key component to the Experiential Liberal Arts, an educational model that integrates experiential learning with the rigorous study of society, culture, and politics.

As a student in the Africana Studies Program, you have the opportunity to take your critical thinking skills outside of the classroom and apply them in a wide variety of co-op work settings, such as law, education, public health, and government.
