Monterey Bay Internships


Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) is an academic program in which students earn college credit for what they learn while working at paid jobs or as volunteers (even if self-employed). Often CWEE units will apply to the Associate Degree and/or can be transferred to 4-year California State Universities as elective credit.

Description: tudent with employer mentorStudents, with the guidance of their work supervisor and CWEE instructor, set their own Learning Objectives, which they fulfill during the semester. Learning Objectives are the "heart" of the program. They define what and how a student will learn on the job during the semester. By developing and achieving Learning Objectives, students are able to demonstrate to their supervisors their ability to learn and grow, and increase the student's value as an employee.  

Students must work 75 hours (if paid) or 60 hours (if volunteer) over the semester for each unit attempted. Students who work at least 20 hours a week can earn up to 4 units of credit in one semester. 

Students whose work relates to one of the college's occupational disciplines can enroll in Occupational Work Experience for 1 to 4 units in one semester. (Depending on Department) Students whose work does not relate to one of the Occupational disciplines can enroll in General Work Experience Education for 3 units each semester.  

Students do not need to enroll in other courses in order to enroll in CWEE classes. There are no class meetings required, other than an initial orientation meeting.
