Internships
 

The primary purpose of an internship is to present you an opportunity to work directly in a professional atmosphere so that you can connect the classroom and the work environment. An internship allows you to gain professional experience, explore careers, discover more about yourself, plan for the future and, in many cases, receive academic credit.

If you are interested in an internship, start by reading the internship information for your particular sequence which is listed on this page. For more information, contact Beverly Dominick at 803.777.3347 or via e-mail at bdominick.sc.edu.

Potential Employers: This important information is for you!

Employers love to hire our students as interns. In fact, typically we have as many internship possibilities as we do students to fill those slots. So, if you’re interested in hiring a student intern from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, consider the following:

1. Can you provide a meaningful supervised experience in a professional work setting for students majoring in print, broadcast, public relations, advertising or visual communications?

2. Pay a stipend or by the hour. Research shows that employers who are willing to pay our students have a better chance of finding the right intern!

3. Remember that students who are getting academic credit:

  • Must be a junior or senior.
  • Must have professional supervision in the student’s area related to the student’s major.
  • Must have a designated work space at the internship company.
  • Must work a minimum of 140 hours.
  • Must complete the internship while school is in session (Fall, Spring or Summer semesters).
  • Must get the internship approved in the career services office before the internship begins.

4. Finally, please remember that while many of our students find their own internships and complete them without credit and without pay, only those who register their internship in the career services office are eligible to receive USC liability insurance.
