BUS 290 Cooperative Work Study

Credits: (3)
A course designed to prepare students to work after graduation. A learning contract containing specific educational objectives that relate to both the work experience and the field of study is developed between the student and a faculty co-op coordinator. Course requirements include a minimum of 180 hours of work, the maintenance of a work journal to record hours worked and duties performed, other work as required by the instructor and a final term paper. The student’s performance will be evaluated by the co-op faculty coordinator on the basis of meeting the objectives in the learning contract and satisfactory evaluation by the employer. A letter grade will be awarded. No experiential credit is given for previous work in the field. The work experience cannot be used to satisfy the requirements of any other course.
