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.
Interview to Internship (i2i), a Career Kickstart program, prepares students for life after college by giving them an immersive interview experience. In i2i, company representatives looking to hire interns visit the UW Department of Communication for two hours to conduct 15-minute interviews with pre-selected UW Comm students. Through the program, students have the opportunity to meet with a variety of potential employers and secure dynamic internships. Past companies who have participated in our i2i program include: Alaska Airlines Magazine, Solid Ground, and JJ Caprices.
If your organization is interested in participating in our i2i program, please fill out this i2i Company Application Form.
