CO-OP Program

The Biological & Allied Health Sciences program at Ohio Northern University offers a unique experience for students to gain professional experience in a biologically or environmentally-related occupation with a governmental, consulting, or industrial entity. This will give students opportunities to interact with professional scientists in an employer-employee context.

The 'normal' academic program of students choosing the CO-OP program will be five years, rather than the four year degree. CO-OP program students may spend a total of four 10 week terms of employee/intern activity with the CO-OP agency. These CO-OP activities will be interspersed with regular academic terms on campus enrolled as full-time students.

Many students are offered permanent positions at these employers after graduation. Others will gain valuable experience working in their area of study and have an opportunity to add a study-related field to their resume.

*Junior status and approval of the department chair is required for participation in the CO-OP program. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Rod Anderson or by email at
