Internship Program

Faculty work with students to highlight potential job opportunities after graduation through our internship program. Our internship program continues to grow and many of our faculty have networks in Arkansas and elsewhere that communication students can tap in to as they plan their lives after graduation. Our students also work through alumni channels to pursue both internships and employment after graduation.
