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 Internship Form.

  • Participate in i2i: Interview to Internship, 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.
