Work-Based Learning Program

Provides you the opportunity to translate classroom theories into practical applications on the job. It is a credit course which tells your future employers that not only did you perform to the specifications of your internship or co-op, but that you also met LCCC's standards of academic performance. Opportunities exist with local employers as well as LCCC's own Innovation Fund entrepreneurs. You can also earn credit for a current job in your field of study.

 Types of Work-Based Learning Experiences

 Parallel Co-op

Students may work part- or full-time, and attend LCCC classes part- or full-time.

 Work-in-Place Co-op

Students who are already working in their field may be able to get credit for work-in-place co op experiences if they have new responsibilities that will result in new learning.

 Employment Plus!

Employment Plus! is an actual part-time or full-time job placement. The employer hires the student to fill a staffing need, and begins what will, hopefully, be a long-term employment relationship.


Through an internship, students can become familiar with the environment of the profession they intend to pursue. Internships often involve lower level responsibilities than the co-op, but will provide the opportunity to explore the profession and make better informed career decisions.


Service Learning
Service Learning is a form of experiential education that combines meaningful community service with classroom instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities. Service learning achieves and enhances course objectives while meeting an identified community need.
