The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication is home to a dynamic internship program! You can find our interns in large and small companies, in unique government positions, or at thriving non-profit organizations. Our program allows career-driven, practical students to gain useful experience in challenging positions. Interns are often asked to accept a permanent position at their internship site, and organizations continually tap into our pool of available interns. We are proud of our ability to attract top organizations and driven students.
