Undergraduate Programs


All Communication students complete one semester of cooperative education. Co-op provides you with paid employment experience as well as the opportunity to practice and further develop skills in your chosen profession. As one of the oldest and largest in the country, RIT's co-op program is known and respected by employers throughout the nation.

After completing 60 credit hours, you are eligible for co-op. Before beginning your co-op search, visit the Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services, where personal job-search counseling and guidance are available. The office is located on campus in the Bausch & Lomb Center. You are free to draw on personal resources such as friends or family when seeking a co-op position; however, Job Zone, with its catalogues of current openings, is extremely helpful.
