Undergraduate Co-op

Cooperative Education Program at Drexel

A Little Class and a Lot of Hard Work Go a Long Way.

Cooperative education at Drexel enables undergraduate students to balance classroom theory with practical, hands-on experience prior to graduation. Students alternate classes with full-time employment through University-approved employers. Generally, students are on co-op for a six-month period, alternating with six months of classroom study. Cooperative education at Drexel is a degree requirement for most majors.

Drexel offers two co-op programs: the five-year program with three co-op experiences and the four year with one co-op experience. For most majors there is an option of five-year or four-year. See a list of majors with their available co-op programs.
