The Cooperative Education Program at Saint Joseph’s University adds valuable work experience to a student's collegiate resume. Through hands-on experience, Hawks from all majors find ways to apply their studies in a professional setting before they graduate.

The co-op program at SJU unites the classroom and the workplace by giving students two full-time, paid work opportunities, creating one full year of job experience while they are still in college. By participating in co-op, students are exposed to job opportunities that are educationally enriching and professionally meaningful.
