An internship program provides job-preparation experience at a variety of communication-related firms, including public relations departments, newspaper publishers, radio and television stations and church institutions.
As a communication or convergent media major, you will be encouraged to use your communication skills in a broad range of student activities and campus leadership opportunities.
My job in the PR house has given me so many useful and practical experiences. It's
an on-campus job that is flexible with my academic schedule. The most odd - yet exciting - thing I did at work was during
graduation, when my boss and I found a bird flying around the gym prior to commencement.
It was fun and insightful to see how Bluffton faculty problem solved, and I was able
to "take notes" from that. It directly connected me to my major because I am a PR
major. I am given the opportunity to directly apply skills learned in class to my
work, and concepts I learn at work to my classes and projects.
