Organizational communication students take a required, 3-credit course in either “Internship in Business” or “Portfolio Management” during their junior or senior year.
“Internship in Business” is a seminar course that provides hands-on experience and training, networking with professionals in the field, and assessment of your personal career strengths and interests. You’ll spend a minimum of 120 hours working with professionals in the field. In this capstone seminar, students discuss organizational behavior and management concepts.
“Portfolio Management” enables you to document your knowledge and skills, develop a resume and compile writing samples that make you more marketable in as you seek your first professional position or as you apply for graduate school.
All Assumption students may also participate in the College’s internship programs and spend a semester gaining practical experience. There are two types of internships available to most Assumption students:
Enroll in academic internship and work with an academic advisor and the internship site.
Participate in a career internship, which provides valuable experience but does not offer academic credit. This type of internship may be paid or unpaid and it generally occurs during or following the summer of the junior year.
