offer DePaul University College of Communication students "real world" experience in their chosen field of study. Working directly with a variety of corporate, government, and not-for-profit organizations, the highly successful College of Communication Internship Program creates
internship opportunities for eligible students in fields such as broadcast, print, and online media, radio, television, and film, public relations, advertising, and marketing agencies, philanthropic and historical non-profit organizations.
While participating in a College of Communication internship, students also take a course that combines work and learning.

The course meets DePaul's Experiential Learning Requirement only when taken concurrently with an internship.
