Eastern Kentucky University's Co-op Program is the first program accredited in the state of Kentucky by the Accreditation Council for Cooperative Education.  We offer both Co-op and Internship opportunities.


Students earn academic credit as well as a salary.  During the 2012-13 academic year, 981 students, both Co-op and Interns, earned over $4,000,000.


A degree is not enough in today's competitive job market.   Nearly half of our students are offered positions with their Co-op or Internship  employers.  Employers seek co-op graduates because experience matters.
