The internship program for undergraduates of junior and senior standing to graduate-level students promotes the integration of academic theory with practical experience. In addition to completing administrative tasks around their respective work environments, interns are often exposed to networking opportunities, mentored by industry professionals, and taught the skills necessary to succeed in their industry. Above all, the internship program expands student understanding of the dynamics of the ever-changing fields of traditional and new media.
Often, students will use their internship to either validate career aspirations or develop new direction. We encourage most students to do several internships during their academic career to obtain the best understanding of their chosen career field.
