Are internships required?

Not as a core course, but they are essential to

• Giving yourself real-world experience.

• Networking with peers and professionals.

• Making yourself competitive when looking for a job.

You are entitled to up to six hours

of course credit for internships.

Obtain multiple internships, so you — particularly electronic media majors — may wish to spread out the hours. (Electronic media groups require students to take internships for course credit.)
