The B.S. degree program emphasizes development of strong career skills by requiring that students have cooperative experience between their 2nd and 4th years of course work.
The co-op experience can involve many kinds of psychology-related employment. This provides students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge in such settings as a research laboratory, industry, or a clinic.
The co-op experience is a non-credit bearing, full-time, paid employment position directly related to your field of study. Occasionally students work in unpaid positions to fulfill a co-op requirement. These co-op equivalents are handled differently and must be approved in advance. For more information about co-op equivalents, please see the descriptions of Co-ops vs Equivalents. All co-ops (and equivalents) MUST be approved by Dr. Joseph Baschnagel (Acting Department Chair) or Dr. Lindsay Schenkel.
