Internships

The School of Communication at The Ohio State University actively encourages students to explore internship opportunities as a critical component to a well-rounded study of communication and journalism. Internships allow students to gain valuable skills and experiences in the professional world and encourage students to apply in-classroom experiences to real-world settings. Completion of at least one or two internship experiences can increase students' marketability when searching for a full-time position after graduation.

Maxwell Miller, Strategic Communication major, shares why he valued his internship experiences

More than 50% of our students participate in an internship for academic credit prior to graduation. Internship credit is required on the Journalism major curriculum and is an elective on the Communication major curriculum. Learn more.
