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.
Your knowledge from the classroom, including the ability to read, analyze, and write, gets tested and honed while on co-op. History majors work in a variety of fields on co-op and after graduation.
