Like most students, communication majors are encouraged to pursue internships in their field of interest. Because of the breadth of the field, communication internships are everywhere! Beaver Jobnet is a great place to start looking for internships, as well as InternMatch.com which has listings for internships across the country, many of them paid.
Once you have secured an internship related to communication, you may want to try to seek COMM credits for its completion. This will require submitting a proposal as well as a final paper on your internship experience, earning you up to 12 credits. Learn more about the COMM internship requirements.
