Contact Nancy Kerr, Media Communication Program Director,
The Communication major will provide you with the specific skills that will give you the most flexibility in a fast-moving, innovative industry. Because you'll follow an in-depth curriculum in the Communication major starting in your first semester, you'll be qualified sooner for internships.
The average Communication major completes two to three internships—and some do more. Multiple internship opportunities help you explore and put the finishing touches on an integrated set of skills that will help you launch a successful career. The Program Director and Career Services work extensively with you to identify internships that align with your interests and career goals, and then will coach you in writing cover letters, resumes, building interview skills and preparing you to represent yourself well in a professional environment.
In their internships, Communication majors have worked on communication outreach, media relations, newsletter writing, editing, website content production, research, photography, video production, audio production, on-air radio, TV news, TV sports, social media, public relations, branding, blogging, legislative work and event management, among other activities.
Great internships don't just happen. You need to have developed some valuable skills, you need a good resume, you need expert guidance, and you need an "in." At Champlain, we make sure you well prepared in all four areas.
