Internship is required. The Department of Communication Studies offers two types of internship opportunities; all students must take one or the other; taking both is encouraged.

COMM 470, Communication Capstone, is a campaign-centered, group internship experience. Students work in competitive teams to develop comprehensive communication campaigns for outside organizations. Recent clients include The MeFine Corporation, The Interfaith Food Shuttle, and Wake Enterprises. These student-developed campaigns routinely win national awards.

COMM 450, Communication Internship, is an individual internship experience with academic requirements of a 3.0 GPA within the major and a 2.5 GPA overall. Successful completion of the course requires 180 hours of professional experience over the course of a semester, and engagement in a classroom component where students process their experiences from their off campus sites; and refine resume, cover letter, and interviewing competencies. Students can search out internship sites on their own, or work with faculty in locating suitable internship sites.
