|Cooperative Education and Internship Program
· · · · · ·
Many of our Public History students volunteer or work for local and regional historical organizations performing work in their chosen field of study. If you are one of those students and you would like a record of your work to appear on your transcript, go the link below and learn how you can register for the cooperative education and internship program. This program is administered by Career Services and is an excellent way to officially document your volunteer or work experience.
Please Note: You do not need to register your Public History Internship, HST 7810, with this program. It already appears on your transcript as a credit course.
If interested, complete the Co-op Acceptance Form and return to Career Services.
BENEFITS TO REGISTERING YOUR VOLUNTEER, INTERNSHIP OR WORK EXPERIENCE
- You want to be competitive in the job market. The appearance of co-op and internship courses on your transcript makes you a better looking and more competitive candidate when you are being checked out by employers and graduate schools, who are often looking for co-op and internship experience as a deciding factor.. Your CPE courses are evidence of valid, field related experience, an ability to apply your academic knowledge in a practical way to real world settings, and your ability to balance competing priorities.
- You want an official record of your work history.
When you register through Career Services, your work experience appears on your transcript. Having your field-related experience officially represented on your transcript eases your task of documenting the jobs.
- Career Services makes it easy.
Career Services will manage the registration paperwork that documents your co-op experiences on your official transcript.
- The registration is free!
If you enroll in the CPE course, you do not pay tuition for that course, as CPE is a registration option carrying no academic credit. This is a good option if you are not taking classes, or if you do not need elective hours.
