Communications off campus


An important part of your communications learning will be hands-on experience in an internship. Northwestern’s Career Development Center will help you prepare for and find an internship that matches your interests and talent. Whether you stay close to campus or venture across the country, the experience will build your resume, increase your professional network, and maybe even lead to landing your first job. Communications students have interned at:

  • Passenger Productions | Sioux Falls, SD
  • Missouri Life Magazine | Boonville, MO
  • The Kennedy Center | Washington, DC
  • Sparrow Label Group | Nashville
  • Republican Party | San Diego
  • planitOmaha | Omaha, NE
