The Department of Communication's Internship Program is designed to provide students with real-life working experiences at companies and other organizations that offer such experiences related to the field of communication.
Internships are essential in the areas of broadcasting and public relations, but are also helpful in preparing the student for many other communication areas, including graduate school.
The broadcasting concentration requires students to take a 3 credit internship (CMST 486), but students in the other concentration are also eligible to apply.
Students who want to apply for an internship must meet the following three criteria:
- They have a 2.0 in the major.
- They have completed 15 credits of coursework in the major.
- They have secured a sponsoring internship site.
Students may select which Communication faculty member they want to supervise the internship, subject to approval of the department chair.
Each semester, the Department of Communication holds an internship information session for CMST majors.
A letter announcing this event is sent out to all Communication majors.
Students can apply for an internship or receive further information by contacting Rob McKenzie, Department of Communication Internship Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (570) 422-3886.
