Internships

Our students have numerous opportunities to gain professional experience in a variety of settings in our metropolitan area. Major news networks, public relations firms, non-profit organizations, the automotive industry and various governmental offices are just a few examples.

The Department of Communication has carefully designed our sequence of classes to teach the professional skills needed for success in all communication-orientated careers. However, to sharpen your skills and build your resume/portfolio, you need to practice these skills by constantly seeking professional experience as an intern and/or freelancer.

For that reason, internships are highly encouraged for all students in the Department of Communication. If you are a journalism major or minor at least one internship is required. All students must first meet with the internship coordinator before starting any internship search.

For more information on available internships, visit the journalism office or contact the internship coordinator, Professor Lessenberry, below.
