Students pursue diverse career opportunities in wide-ranging fields related to communication. Most Communication Studies majors undertake internships that help them try out their career choices. Internships include work in broadcast or print media, journalism, personnel or human resource development, social service work, legislative work, community organizing, public relations, advertising, marketing, event planning, arts management, as well as other individualized internships created by the student and the organization.
Corporations typically cite knowledge and skills in communication as among the most important assets a college graduate brings to business. Internships are a way for students to put their work in Communication Studies into action.
Recent internships completed by communication studies students include:
It is also possible to do internships in places other than the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area. In the summer we offer our internship seminar, the Field Experience Seminar which is entirely online. This makes it possible for students to complete internships anywhere in the world where they have access to the internet. In addition, Communication Studies students have completed internships in England (through our study abroad program in at York University), South America, and Scotland (in association with the Certificate in International Journalism program).
The possibilities for internships are endless, limited only by the interests and creativity of individual students. We work closely with students to help them craft their experiences on internships in ways that will help them integrate their knowledge of communication studies with the experiences they have at their internship sites.
