Work-based learning (WBL) provides the opportunity for students to earn academic credit by working for an employer in a position directly related to their field of study.
A successful WBL program is the result of cooperative efforts among the employer, the college and the student. The employer and student will coordinate a weekly schedule completing 160 hours in the semester for a one credit class. Students put theory into practice in a supportive environment, while employers help the student to identify their strengths and weaknesses, gaining valuable employability skills.
If you are a business interested in providing a work-based learning opportunity for a student, or if you are a student currently enrolled in one of the programs of study shown above and wish to pursue a work-based learning experience, please contact:
