Comm Studies' Students
Thinking about an internship?
An internship can be one of your most interesting academic experiences.
You take what you have learned in the classroom and apply it in a business
or nonprofit setting.
To learn about the Internship Program, just set up you account by clicking
on the link at the top of the page (Create a New Student Account). Even if
you are not sure when you will be taking an internship, we recommend you
start thinking of it at least a full semester before you start.
Each interested student should make an appointment to see the Internship
Director in the semester BEFORE you are thinking of applying for an
internship. I will be happy
to talk with you and help you plan for a great internship experience.
Already been approved for your internship?
You should be all set. Just login to submit your Daily Journal summaries. Don't
forget to check the Calendar and Assignments section of the website,
along with the many other resources available to you.
If you run into any problems, let me know. I look forward to working with you to help you get you the best internship position
See you soon,
Dr. Michael Pearson
