Co-ops & Internships
The cooperative education (co-op) and internship program is a valuable part of your time at RIT, one that gives you the opportunity to gain meaningful work experience before you graduate. It will also help you further define your career path and fully realize the value of what you are learning in the classroom. Students can leave their co-op positions with resume experience, professional recommendations, and sometimes even a job offer!
While some of the programs in the College of Liberal Arts have required co-ops or internships, all recommend taking advantage of the opportunity and building one into your time at RIT. With all of the resources available to our students, it’s easy to find one that fits your individual interests and goals.
