UA students participate in summer 2022 cooperative education
Special to the Enquirer
This summer, 165 University of Alabama students are receiving hands-on, innovative and advanced educational experiences with dozens of companies and organizations across the United States through UA’s Cooperative Education Program during the summer 2022 semester.
James Garner of Falkville, Jacob Garrison and Bentley Watson, both of Hartselle, are participating in the co-op program this semester.
In the Cooperative Education Program, students alternate periods of full-time study with periods of full-time employment. This program offers work related to the academic major or career interests of each student.
While in school, students carry regular course schedules. While on co-op, they work with professionals in their fields who supervise their training and work. At work, co-op students earn competitive salaries and may receive benefit packages in addition to valuable job experience. Participants maintain their full-time student status while at work and have priority registration status each semester through graduation.
