Building experience in the professional world

Internships that immerse students in a professional work setting are great opportunities to help them gain experience, build their resumes, make networking connections and possibly even earn class credit. In the process, students often are able to learn more about what they enjoy and don’t enjoy and can adjust their future elective course choices accordingly.


Internships may be done during the summer or during the school year, may be full time or part time and may be paid or unpaid. Many brands and companies seek out our students to fill their internships. Strategic communication students are alerted to those opportunities through email notifications as well as through our social media sites of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
