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 towards graduation. When a student does an internship for credit, the Career Center will enroll them in Cooperative Education, renaming their internship to a "co-op" for 1-8 credits in their major.

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