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 enhance their understanding of sociology and cultural anthropology through co-op. They develop professional, academic, and life skills while completing their co-op experiences at a wide variety of placements, including corporations, non-profit organizations, direct care providers, educational institutions, law firms, research institutes, government agencies and more. Students are often surprised at how their co-op experiences integrate with and enrich their academic learning. They gain numerous insights when they see and experience themes and topics they have discussed in class.
