Internships provide students with real-world experience to complement what they learn in the classroom. All majors in the Journalism and Mass Communication Department must complete a 120-hour internship and a one-credit-hour seminar course, JMC 495. This course provides a framework for students to complete tasks that will help them identify and obtain an appropriate internship; it relies as much as possible on resources available through The ACU Career Center, including the College Central Network, a comprehensive jobs/internships database.
