COOP 101: Drexel's Co-op Prep Course

COOP 101 is a 10-week course designed to prepare you for your co-op experience and to develop career planning and job search skills that will remain relevant throughout your career. Successful completion of COOP 101 is required for participation in Drexel University's co-op program.

Recognizing that some students enter Drexel with many of the fundamentals that are the basis of COOP 101, we offer a version of this course, COOP 001 - Co-op Essentials. The COOP 001 curriculum focuses on transition. Embarking on a new career, creating targeted resumes, and leveraging previous experience during interviews are among the topics that are discussed.

During the fall, winter and spring terms, Drexel offers a section of COOP 001 specifically for Veterans. If you are interested in this option or if you would like additional information, contact Angela Brennan or Mary Ellen Ford.
