Internships and Co-Ops

Get Real-World Experience

It's a fact: Employers prefer to hire graduates with hands-on experience in their majors.

  • As a UNT student, you have the opportunity to gain practical experience through an internship or co-op that will enhance your classroom learning.
  • Working as an intern or co-op student gives you a competitive advantage in the job market.
  • These opportunities can also provide you with insight into your future career.

Earn School Credit While You Work

There are several ways you can work while going to school:

  • Parallel co-op allows you to work part time while simultaneously attending classes.
  • Alternating co-op alternates semesters of work and school, so you work full time for a semester and then return to school full time.
  • Internships allow you to work only one semester, often during the summer.

Depending upon your major, academic credit can be part of your internships & co-op experience.
