Internships are designed to provide students with experience in their prospective career-field. Our hope is that internship experiences reinforce concepts taught in the classroom, clarify career development goals, and builds relationships within the student’s future career-field. Beyond providing experiential learning opportunities, all approved internships will allow students to obtain credit hours that can be applied to their undergraduate degree.

In order to obtain credit for an internship students must:

  1. Find an internship opportunity that is within the communications field and/or will require communications-related tasks as the primary duties.
  2. Complete and return the Internship Agreement at least 30 days prior to the start of the semester. Internship Agreements should be sent to This form is available online via the Canvas Organization for School of Communication Undergraduate Students and is also included on this page.
  3. Review all course materials once enrolled in the appropriate internship course. A syllabus and assignments will be posted to the course Canvas site. All assignments are intended to help prepare students for their respective careers.

We recommend discussing the internship requirements with the College of Communication and Information advising team, as internship requirements vary by major.

There are several resources that exist to assist in the process of finding an internship, such as:

  • The FSU Career Center. CCI has a dedicated career liaison who can also assist in the process of finding an internship.
  • The CCI News & Events page. Many internship opportunities are posted on this page.
  • The internship faculty advisor at the School of Communication (Jason Khan-Hohensee).

The School of Communication has developed relationships with many employers who routinely recruit our students for internship and employment opportunities. We often times can assist in the process of connecting students with internship opportunities, although it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to secure an internship and to complete the necessary steps to obtain credit for their internship.
