In the Department of Communication we believe that a high-quality internship provides a valuable opportunity for majors to gain exposure to communication careers while acquiring skills, contacts, and work products that will help upon entrance to the job market. We currently offer up to 4 credits to students with internships, 1 to 2 credits per quarter.
To receive credit you must complete 5 communication courses and fill out the COM 395 Application Form
Participate in Internship Thursdays, where company representatives come to the Department for a few hours to conduct several 15-minute interviews with UW Comm students in CMU 102. Come dressed to impress with resume in hand for a shot to intern with leading Seattle companies.
The 2013-14 Internship Thursday series has ended, but check back in the fall for opportunities to participate.
