Undergraduate Transportation Studies Minor/Co-op
Undergraduate Minor in
The Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis is pleased to announce a new undergraduate program. First offered in the fall of 2005, a minor in transportation studies is now available to undergraduate UMSL students of any major. This new minor provides students in the St. Louis area who desire employment in a transportation-related field with the opportunity to gain valuable skills applicable to the transportation industry. The minor will also provide the industry with a source of university-trained personnel in their field.
Undergraduate Cooperative Program:
Junior and senior level UMSL students seeking a minor in transportation studies will have an opportunity to work in part-time jobs at local transportation/logistics-related firms. They will work fifteen to twenty hours per week. Part-time positions may include jobs in third-party logistics firms, in warehousing operations, or in rail-, air-, water-, and motor-carrier companies. Approximately every six months, the Center intends to rotate students to different jobs within the co-op program, exposing them to a variety of companies and jobs, thereby increasing students’ knowledge and marketability. Graduating students will possess diverse work experiences and be qualified to fill first-line managerial/sales positions at transportation/logistics/warehousing companies. Local firms participating in the cooperative program will have a pool of well-trained and experienced UMSL transportation studies graduates.
