Currently internships in the three majors are overseen by faculty: Herb Ritchell (Advertising and Public Relations), Cheryl McPhilimy (Communication Studies), and John Slania (Journalism).
Please see the School of Communication internship site. Students in Ad/PR typically go into jobs that are professionally directed and focused through their experiences in that major. Journalism students are expected to have a second major or minor based on the principle that writers need to have an area of expertise to write about. Communication Studies majors go into the most diverse areas of professional life (even journalism and/or ad/pr jobs). They often go on to graduate school in education, law, business, counseling or social work. Many secure professional positions in a range of areas because of their strong speaking, writing and critical thinking skills.
