Internships - Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education (Co-op) Internships are an educational partnership between Lane Community College, the business community, and Lane students.

Co-op integrates on-the-job work experience with academic studies. Students earn credit and a grade while working full-time or part-time in positions related to their career and academic goals.

Interested in earning credit for working abroad?  Co-op offers international internships as well.

Over 500 Lane Students work at Co-op job sites each year. Co-op opportunities are available in most Lane Programs.
