Much more than just professional experience

Participating in one or more field experiences—co-ops and internships—while at UMass is one of the best ways to prepare for your career.

There are a wide range of field experience opportunities for students. You can intern or be on co-op during an academic semester or during the summer. All co-ops are paid, while only some internships are paid. They all provide valuable experience for you and improve your résumé.
