Graduate Co-op

Expand Your Graduate Experience: Graduate Co-op

Cooperative education at Drexel is now available for select graduate degree programs. Graduate Co-op enables graduate students to alternate class terms with a six-month period of hands-on experience, gaining access to employers in their chosen industries. Whether co-op takes students throughout the United States or abroad, they are expanding their professional networks, enhancing their résumés, and bringing that experience back to the classroom and their peers.
