School of Communication Students Looking for an
Check out our listing of approved internships below. Make
sure that you have the skill set the internship provider wants and follow-up
with them as instructed in the in the internship posting. Download a copy of
the Internship Form (Student.Internship.Form.PDF) and fill it out completely. Generally, each
semester hour of credit equates to 50 work hours. For example, if you wanted to
earn 3 semester hours of credit, you’d have to work 150 hours during the
semester, that’s about 10 hours per week.
Please note that you must have completed 89 semester hours
AND have a gpa of 2.5 or greater if you want to register for a senior-level
internship (408). If you have completed 60-88 hours, you will need to register
for a junior-level internship (389). Once you and your internship supervisor
have filled out (and signed) the Internship Form attach an unofficial
transcript to it and drop it off at the School of Communication office on the 3rd
floor. It will be routed for you. Once all signatures are obtained, you will
get a call from us with a “suppressed sequence number” so you will be allowed
to register for the hours and it will be part of your academic record. You MUST
register for the internship.
For students with less than 60 completed hours
of coursework, contact a faculty member in your major to discuss fieldwork
experiences that might be available for you.
Prospective Internship Providers
Are you a place of employment looking to hire an intern from
the School of Communication? We would love for our students to work in the
community and learn more about their field. If you can offer a supervised
internship experience for one of our students, we would love to talk more with
you about how we can work together to make this happen!
We have all potential intern supervisors fill out this form
(attached). This helps us advertise the position to the appropriate students.
We will know the skills and qualifications you are looking for the student to
have already learned prior to the internship, the hours he or she will be
working, where they will be working and whether it is paid or unpaid. In addition,
the student will know what application materials are needed to apply.
Once you select an intern, you will be sent an evaluation
form so you can let us know how the internship is proceeding. We generally send
them out at 7-8 weeks (mid-term) and again at about 15 weeks (final).
