Co-Op

The Photography Co-op is based on employment in practical, photography industry positions consistent with the interests and abilities of participating students. The benefits are obvious—during their time at Drexel, students experience up to three different co-ops. Because of this, Drexel students graduate having already built a professional network, and they typically receive higher starting salaries than their counterparts from other schools. The Co-op lasts six months and takes place in the junior year of study. The following list is a sampling of the types of businesses our students typically work with.
