Internships

The faculty of the Department of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Arts believe that internships are such a valuable and worthwhile opportunity, we require internships for all majors in order to graduate.

We also view internships as an important part of your academic journey, which is why we grant course credit for your internship.  However, since an internship is a part of your academic journey, we expect the internship to be a genuine learning experience.  As a result, some internship opportunities may not qualify as an internship for credit.

The Department expects an internship to provide you an opportunity to apply what you have learned in your coursework to a “real world” setting as well as provide you an opportunity to learn new skills and knowledge.  When you apply for an internship, you will be required to explain the learning opportunities that you anticipate will arise from your internship.  If the Internship Director and/or the faculty are not convinced an internship will provide clear learning objectives then the internship may be denied.
