UA Students Participate in Co-op Program in Summer 2014

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — More than 180 University of Alabama students during the summer 2014 semester are receiving a hands-on educational experience at more than 60 companies and organizations through UA’s Cooperative Education Program.

In the Cooperative Education Program, students alternate periods of full-time study with periods of full-time employment. This program offers work related to the academic major or career interests of each student. The experience enhances the students’ employment prospects after graduation.

While in school, students carry regular course schedules. While on co-op, they work with professionals in their fields who supervise their training and work. At work, co-op students earn competitive salaries and may receive benefit packages in addition to valuable on-the-job experience.

Students maintain their full-time student status while at work and have priority registration status each semester through graduation.

Participating students and work sites for summer 2014 are:
