Cooperative Education

Print Friendly

Co-op is for students who want to earn college credit while getting a paycheck, and it is for employers who want educated and employable workers. The program is based upon the idea that on-the-job training is an integral part of a student’s academic background. It connects West Virginia University at Parkersburg with businesses, community agencies, and industries in creating a vital educational experience. The year-round program links classroom theories and instruction with the actual practice of work. Working under the supervision of college faculty and employers, eligible students earn college credit while working at jobs which are directly related to their college majors and career goals.
