Internships

Internships build more than resumes

Preparing to navigate the complexities of a modern, globalized communications landscape requires stepping outside the classroom and exploring professional environments. As part of our programs, we will encourage you to complete at least one internship that helps reinforce your academic learning. Not only will you develop hands-on experience, you can earn up to 9 academic credits for your achievement.
