An internship is one of the most valuable learning experiences a student can have. Internships afford students opportunities to apply what they have learned in the classroom, make important networking and reference contacts, affirm career plans and enhance resumes and portfolios—all things that are essential for future success.

Communication Studies students at West Virginia University have completed internships with advertising agencies, public relations firms, insurance companies, hospitals, non-profit organizations, pharmaceutical companies, event management firms, radio and television stations, chambers of commerce, human resource departments, consulting firms and more.
