Internship Opportunities

We encourage all Communication and Media Studies majors to complete at least one internship. The internship course is included in the list of elective courses in the major, which means that students can engage internships as part of their major program curriculum. The outcome of including internship experience enables students to link their course work with practical application and provide students with real world high impact experiences.
