Cooperative Education Program

The Cooperative Education Program provides students with academic and career advisement from the time of the student's initial enrollment in the program until graduation. Students enrolled in the Lehman College Cooperative Education Program take the following three courses for elective credit:

CED 105: Introduction to Cooperative Education

CED 270: Social Process and Career Development in the Work Environment

CED 355: Academic Perspectives on the World of Work

There are two types of internship placements available:

  • Alternate Placement. A student is employed full time during an entire semester and returns to full-time study the following semester. While employed, the student must register for a part-time program of courses, including either *CED 270 or *CED 355.
  • Parallel Placement. A student is employed part time (for a minimum of 15 hours per week), while continuing in a full academic program that includes either *CED 270 or *CED 355.

Admission Requirements

Students must have completed 15 credits, have a minimum cumulative index of 2.5, and have passed all the skills-assessment examinations. For further information about the program, contact Career Services at 718-960-8366.
