Co-op Overview

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 Career Servies and Cooperative Education Office maintains job listings from companies and works with IGM to help students with their job search.
