Internships in Communication Studies

Internships are offered with the cooperation of participating community organizations for the purpose of providing new learning opportunities for students through directed observation and work activities.

Supervision of the internship is provided by both the Department of Communication Studies Internship Coordinator and representatives of the cooperating organization.

Many of the internships surfaced in Communication Studies apply to the broader College of Arts & letters as a whole. Whether in a design major, studying a language or something else, there's something for almost everyone.
