All strategic communication and multiplatform journalism students must complete an internship in their junior or senior year. Internships allow students to develop and apply their knowledge and skills in real life settings. Students work under the direct supervision of a business or industry professional, undertake real projects, gain invaluable insight into their chosen career fields, and network with established professionals.
Communication majors have worked both on campus and off campus, including local public relations agencies, media organizations, corporate communication offices, healthcare marketing departments, athletic communication departments from college to professional leagues, fundraising and development offices, and event planning and marketing, and more.
