Real-World Experience

The Department of Communication Studies and the wider University community offer a wide variety of opportunities to become more engaged, well-rounded members of the community. Below are just a few of the ways that students can become involved with work that will enhance their understanding of academic topics.

Take advantage of the invaluable work and academic experience gained through pursuing an internship.

Community Engagement
Interact with the community outside of the University's doors and see communication studies in action.

Undergraduate Research and Directed Activities
Gain valuable research experience as an undergraduate by participating in hands-on historical research. As an undergraduate, you can work closely with faculty members on their research or pursue a research project of your own under the guidance of a faculty member. Opportunities for independent study, research and contributing as a teaching assistant in the classroom are available as well.

HECUA's off-campus and abroad study programs address some of the most important issues of our time. Semester-long programs incorporate classroom studies, an internship, and field work. The Community Service Learning Program houses the HECUA programs in the Twin Cities.
