Students who work or desire to work, either full time or part time at jobs related to their college major or career interests are eligible for Cooperative Education. Students take a career-related classroom seminar (2 hours per week on campus or online) while working at a job (180 hours per semester) in the area of hospitality management. Successful completion of the seminar, and a minimum of 180 hours of work experience in any one semester, entitles a student to receive four credit hours. A student's present job may qualify if related to hospitality management. Appropriate work experience must be approved by the instructor. Individuals must have completed 24 credit hours, with a 2.0 GPA. Exceptions permitted with permission from the instructor. It is recommended that this course is completed in the student's last semester or the summer prior to the last semester. .
