Stonehill's Co-op Program lasts over the course of two semesters, or six months. Co-ops are full-time and many are paid, particularly those in the fields of science, operations and technology. 

  • Benefit from more responsibility and training than offered through a 3-month internship
  • Complete a summer to fall (July–December) or spring to summer (January–June) co-op
  • Live in on-campus housing for local opportunities 
  • Earn 15 credits
    • 9 credits – co-op experience (at least 32-40 hrs/week)
    • 3 credits – Academic work in partnership with the student’s faculty moderator
    • 3 credits – Course of the student’s choice taken at Stonehill (or at another institution if the student is not working locally)

Completing a co-op in DC has been the best opportunity I've ever had. I could see the doors opening for my future. It made having to leave Stonehill after graduation feel less scary.
