Home » Experiential Learning » Co-op


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.

Students majoring in philosophy and religious studies have a variety of interests and a corresponding variety of co-op opportunities available to them. Students interested in exploring a career in law have the chance to work in a small, medium, or large law firm and also to work in the public sector in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office or the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Students interested in public service have the chance to work in local, state, and federal government offices including jobs with the MA-Department of Transportation, the MA-Governor’s Office and MA-Office of Consumer Affairs, among many others. You will develop your communication and advocacy skills as well as hone your interpersonal skills and overall professional skills through co-op work experiences.
