Hands-on experience and networking are two key tools for landing a job after college. Our Faculty and Career Development Office work together to identify student interests and optimize internship placement.
Internships & Careers
In your junior or senior year, you’ll intern at a broadcasting company, public relations firm, newspaper, magazine or other media outlet. Our location, just 20 miles from the world’s largest broadcasting market, means you’ll have opportunities to work for — and with — the best in the business. STAC students have interned at ABC News, CBS News, CBS Radio, the Howard Stern Show, and the Maury Show. Many of these internships turned into full-time employment after graduation.
The internship requirement allow students to gain practical, hands-on knowledge in their field while earning college credit. Students will have a faculty advisor throughout their internship experience and will be expected to reflect on what they have learned through weekly journals as well as a cumulative report or presentation at the end of the semester.
Students seeking internship not for college credit should contact the Office of Career Development for placement opportunities.
Because the field of communications is broad, students are encouraged to partake in more than one internship experience.
