Communication Studies majors are well positioned to take advantage of internship opportunities in a wide variety of communication-related fields including public relations, television production, event planning, non-profit management, and health communication. Since the college is located outside of Trenton in between Philadelphia and New York, many major companies and organizations regularly solicit interns from the department. Qualified students in every track who meet the requirements are encouraged to apply.


To arrange an internship:

  1. See if you qualify and have room on your schedule.
  2. Find a faculty advisor who will sponsor your internship.
  3. Find and secure an internship with your organization of choice.
  4. Complete an Internship Contract (a written proposal and the enrollment form)
  5. Get all the required signatures and drop off the proposal and form at Records & Registration (Green Hall, Room 112)

(If you have additional questions, consult the policy info: Internship Policy Information)
