Careers and Internships: Cooperative Education Internships
SAIC Co-op Internships
Co-op is an internship program where sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students earn course credit and refine their career objectives while establishing a strong employment history.
Co-op is a class and is open to SAIC students who are enrolled in a degree-granting program. Students receive studio or general elective credit, and tuition is charged for a Co-op Internship experience. With more than 400 Co-op internships available every semester, our program encompasses a variety of disciplines unique to artists' interests.
Employers from across the country participate in the SAIC Co-op Program and offer a wide variety of supervised work experiences and career options.
