Mass Communications Practica and Internships
Students are encouraged to participate in practica or internships during which they are expected to practice the technical aspects of their specialties.
Semester hours earned are in addition to the core and specialty areas. Internships are available on and off campus; some are paid.
With approval, students may take both an off-campus internship and an on-campus practicum to be as well prepared technically as possible. Some practica are available on student productions such as:
- The Voice
- BU Now
- a range of other campus communications activities
In areas of advertising and public relations, students gain experience with The Voice and BU Now and enter major regional and national competitions.
The publications provide opportunities for sales management and account development.
