Your path to success begins here.

UNI's Department of Communication Studies has a successful internship program with an average of 40 students in the 'field' every semester.  These opportunities provide students with unique experiences they could not receive in the classroom.  

Internships should be considered a unique three-way partnership that involves the students, the business/organization, and the university.  Students have the opportunity to learn new skills in a business/organization and apply theoretical concepts that they have learned in the classroom. Therefore, interns receive academic credit for working a specific number of hours for the business/organization while completing academic work.
