Internships for Credit

Internships are a great way to gain practical experience in any field you wish to pursue. Internships are not required for students in the Communication Department, but students in all tracks can apply to earn credit for an internship, if eligibility requirements are met before applying. Internships can be with local, regional, national or international organizations.

For more information on how to find, apply, and register for a credit-earning Communication internship, review the following two video presentations and read the information available in the links that follow. To avoid technical problems, view the videos using either Safari or Firefox browsers.

Internship Forum:

Each semester, former and current interns representing each Communication track participate in a panel presentation, followed by a Q&A session, in which they discuss the successes and challenges of their internship experience. This is a great opportunity for you to learn from other students and to ask the internship director questions about the internship process.
