Internships are a big deal in the communication and journalism world. With so many different career paths you can take after graduation, it can be hard to know if something will be the right career for you. With an internship you get to test out a career, get real world experience, and have a better understanding of what you want to do in post-grad life. Many Blugolds participate in more than one internship to try out all of the different options the world has for them.
Our department takes pride in our students and the great work they do when they begin interning at companies and many times we have places begging for Blugolds as interns. You may even land an internship that could turn into a full time job down the road!
Common internship locations
While all of our students find unique and exciting internships, we do find more of our students interning at local businesses, companies, newspapers, and newsrooms.
