Home to nearly 48,000 students from 121 countries, the University of Cincinnati (UC) has been named among the top-tier “Best National Universities” by U.S. News & World Report. UC offers students a balance of educational excellence and real-world experience. UC is a world-class public research university and puts education into action through an unparalleled commitment to experience-based learning.
The University of Cincinnati invented cooperative education (co-op) over 100 years ago, and today ranks among the best universities in the nation for co-op and internships. On co-op, students rotate semesters in the classroom and working paid, full-time positions in their field of study. And 100% of UC students have access to experience-based learning opportunities. That means Cincinnati’s classroom extends to nearly every corner of the globe, from Fortune 500 companies and innovative startups to trailblazing experiences in places like China, Tanzania, and South America. UC co-op students earn a collective $58 million annually working for thousands of employers including Microsoft, Disney, Apple, NASA, Procter & Gamble, and many more.
