About COMM 3610

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. To receive academic credit for an internship related to the Communication major, students must take the online course COMM 3610 concurrent with their internship placement. COMM 3610 is offered for credit/no credit only and fulfills a requirement for the Communication major. 


  • COMM 3610 is for new current internships only. Credit cannot be received for a past internship.
  • Students cannot repeat the COMM 3610 course for the same internship, except in some approved cases such as Student Media on-campus internships.
  • Students cannot use their regular job for internship credit. The internship must have a defined start and end date.
  • 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). 
  • You must submit a new application for each semester you wish to enroll in COMM 3610.
  • Internship dates must coincide with semester dates as closely as possible.
  • Your internship supervisor cannot be a relative, spouse, or fellow student.
