Internships place students in paid or non-paid work activities in the private or public sector. Arrangements for internships normally can be made with Career Services and/or the student’s faculty advisor. Internships are required for graduation from many programs (Check out by Major) at the University and are directly related to the student’s academic major.
To learn more about the program requirements for your internship experience, please contact your school/advisor.

The University of Bridgeport offers an extensive voluntary cooperative education program, allowing students to combine study with work experience in their chosen profession.
Cooperative Education provides a practical application of academic studies plus opportunities to learn material that cannot be taught in the classroom and is always paid.
Work assignments are located via UBjobnet, Career Services or a faculty member in the student’s school. They are related as closely as possible to the student’s course of study and career goals.
International students (F-1 status), please refer to the CPT section to learn more about the eligibility requirements and the application process.
