Cooperative Education (Co-op) Experience
The IGM Bachelor of Science degrees in Game Design & Development and New Media Interactive Development require two co-op blocks (350 hours minimum per block). The MS program does not require a co-op experience, although students may opt to co-op as part of their degree program.
Co-op is short for co-operative education in which you will work in your field and has the following benefits:
- Gain real life career experience
- All co-ops are compensated
- The experience gained will assist with full-time position.
- Allow the opportunity for students to define their career paths
To assist students with finding a job, the Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services maintains job listings from companies and works with IGM to help students with their job search.
