Undergraduate Co-op Program - Analysis
Undergraduate co-ops work on teams with our full-time analysts. They research, analyze, write, and brief on international political, military, economic, scientific, technical, and leadership developments. In addition to their analytic responsibilities, undergraduate co-ops become familiar with the Agency and Intelligence Community by participating in a range of meetings and projects. The program allows participants and the Agency to assess opportunities for a graduate studies internship or permanent employment following the participant's completion of undergraduate school.
Students selected for this program are often attending academic institutions with established cooperative education programs, though not exclusively. They work on an alternating semester or quarterly basis and are expected to spend a minimum of three semesters or four quarters (this can include a summer tour) on the job prior to graduation. The undergraduate co-op program provides increasingly challenging assignments that are commensurate with the students' academic training and individual ability to assume additional responsibility.
