The Communication program leads to a liberal arts degree. A broad communication background prepares students for a wide range of career paths, which each student can narrow through on-the-job experience such as an internship. Internships are strongly recommended for all students.

For information about internships, call the Department at (312) 996-3187 to schedule and appointment with Christina Zimmerman in 1140 BSB. The Department offers COMM 474: Internship for qualifying communication majors.

Students should also look into the the LAS Internship Program located in 521 UH by calling (312) 996-0425.

Internships are competitive and credit is given only to approved internships. Internships should be secured a semester before registering for any internship courses. All internships should be completed during the same semester a student is registered for the internship course.
