Co-op Education Program
Work in your profession while you learn your profession. A co-op is an internship with a salary. It comes with extra supervision – and extra responsibility – in business administration, computer science, engineering or hospitality. Practical know-how, strong leadership, and excellent communication skills are the cornerstones of Widener University’s co-operative education program. Students gain the confidence, courage, competency, and connections they need for professional success.
Our on-campus International Study Center provides a range of dedicated services to help international students flourish while studying. Additional English language support and courses taught by our highly esteemed faculty will give you the confidence and credits needed to progress to the next stage of your academic career.
