The Quinnipiac University School of Communications is equipped with an industry-trained faculty, career development services, and other resources and equipment to help our students excel whether their passion lies in television, radio, film, print, online, public relations or research.
Internships allow for hands-on experience and development of knowledge of the industry under professional guidance and supervision. We require students in most majors to complete an internship of 120 hours for three academic credits. Students are highly encouraged to participate in an internship at the end of their junior year and/or during their senior year. In fact, it is never too early to begin pursuing internships or practical career expreinces. Internships and practical experience beyond the classroom improves our students' preparation for their future career aspirations. Furthermore, internships and practical experience assists students in the development of their marketing pieces; the resume, cover letter and professional portfolio of work completed.
Our goal is to ensure all of our students are prepared when leaving Quinnipiac to enter into the career of their choice. Career opportunities in communications are vast and diverse. Our assistant dean of career services is available to all School of Communications students to assist with career development needs in this ever-changing marketplace. We have career development programs available every step of the way to make sure students make a smooth transition from college to the work force and reach their full potential.
