About COMM 3610

COMM 3610 is an online credit/no credit course that fulfills a requirement for the Communication major.

To receive academic credit for an internship related to the Communication major, students must take COMM 3610 concurrent with their internship placement. An internship is a new and temporary position in which students learn and apply new skills directly related to their major under the guidance of a professional. 

Can I appy to receive credit for past internships?

COMM 3610 is for new current internships only. Credit cannot be received for a past internship.

Can I repeat COMM 3610 multiple times for the same internship?

Can I apply my current job for internship credit?

How many credits does COMM 3610 cover?

Students may take the course for 1-6 credits during the semester. The course may be taken up to 3 times, students can only earn a maximum of 12 credits combined. 

Please Note: COMM 3610 can only count for one course in a given semester. The course will not count for two separate courses if you opt to take it for 6 credits (in other words, it is one course taken for 6 credits).

If I applied to COMM 3610 for fall semester, do I have to apply again for spring and/or summer semesters?

You must submit a new application for each semester you wish to enroll in COMM 3610.

When does my internship have to take place?

Internship dates must coincide with semester dates as closely as possible.
