Career Outcomes Powered by Experience

Through our renowned co-op and experiential learning programs, our students graduate with resumés of real-world experience closely tied to their career paths. They’ve learned how to solve problems as part of a team of professionals and navigate the unexpected challenges of today’s fast-paced workplace. And they’ve gained unique insights into their classroom learning — a deeper focus and understanding that better prepares them for master’s and doctoral work in top graduate programs.

The opportunity to complete 3 different co-op's during my undergraduate career has prepared me immensely for applying for a graduate PhD program in my field. It gave me valuable interviewing skills and the opportunity to discuss meaningful research projects that I have completed while still in undergrad. I have been thrilled by nearly all of the courses I have taken as part of my major, and I feel like these classes reflected a great deal of diversity within my field.
