Student Opportunities

  • Co-ops and/or Interning for Credit

    UConn offers more than 70 internship courses for students looking to earn credit while particpating in internships. If you are working with a student where your department does not have an internship course, or the student does not meet pre-requisites, please refer them to the Center for Career Development's 'Earning Credit While Interning' page: Earn Credit For Your Internship – UConn Center for Career Development. The Career Center also offers two courses for students to consider. 


    Co-op is an excellent opportunity for students lookng for full-time work in an industry of interest, while still enrolled at UConn. They are allowed to take up to 6 credits, though most take no classes, and still have FT Status. Co-op covers an entire semester, is for all majors, and must be paid. Co-ops pay between $12,000 and $18,000 based on the role. Learn more on the co-op page: Co-op – UConn Center for Career Development
