University of Alabama student Bethany Cook, of Russellville, will participate in UA’s Cooperative Education Program for spring 2019, according to a press release from the university. Cook will be working at Alabama Power.
In the Cooperative Education Program, more than 230 students alternate periods of full-time study with periods of full-time employment. This program offers work related to the academic major or career interests of each student.
While in school, students carry regular course schedules. While on co-op, they work with professionals in their fields who supervise their training and work.
At work, co-op students earn competitive salaries and may receive benefit packages in addition to valuable job experience. Participants maintain their full-time student status while at work and have priority registration status each semester through graduation.
