It allows such students the opportunity to apply the theories and skills of their discipline to their position and to undertake new responsibilities and learn new skills at work. Topics include goal-setting, employability skills development, and examination of the world of work as it relates to the student's major and career plans.
Students may earn a maximum of four units per semester and a maximum of 16 units in any combination of cooperative work experience (general or occupational) and/or internship studies during community college attendance.
