Internships let you take your classroom knowledge and apply it to the workforce. As a cooperative learning experience, internships and practicums can be applied for classroom credits toward graduation. When you do an internship for credit, the Career Center will enroll you in the Cooperative Education program, converting your internship to a "co-op" for 1-8 credits in your major.

Concordia is prepared to find the perfect opportunity for you, utilizing resources such as Handshake, LinkedIn, and the Career Center. Concordia challenges you through these experiences to grow your learning and understanding as part of the workforce. Many Cobbers have taken advantage of internships throughout their four years in a variety of ways.
