The Russert Department of Communication encourages majors to complete internships throughout their college career. Internships are integral when applying for career-oriented positions. The department academic credit for internships for credit (1, 2, or 3 credits) as well as a zero credit-transcript notation option. All options require students engage in reflection and exploration as they intern.
Some internships in the Communication field are unpaid; however, the College of Arts and Sciences will support students with unpaid internships. Please contact Dr. Peggy Finucane by email (RussertInterns@jcu.edu) or by phone (216.397.1608) for more information and an application for funding.
