Is your goal to travel, live overseas, or experience another culture?

Then International Co-op is for you! You work alongside the very people you would rush past while sightseeing. No other type of international experience is this authentic.

Is your goal to find a job that advances your career?

Then International Co-op is for you! You get an insider's perspective while you learn to work, play, eat, drink, and even think like a native of the country you visit.

Is your goal to have some adventure while completing college?

Then International Co-op is for you! Co-op opens the door to adventure and international friendship while you earn college credit. What better way to meet the ethnic, gender, cultural, and diversity requirement for the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree?
