IMC Internships

All IMC majors must complete at least one supervised internship for credit. Students must seek their own internships after consulting with Bonnye E. Stuart, who coordinates all IMC internships. Internships require approval by the on-site supervisor, faculty internship adviser, and department chair followed by registration in the course and fee payment for the credit. Deadlines for internship applications are May 1 for Fall Semester, November 1 for Spring Semester, and April 1 for Summer session.

Because internships are expected to provide meaningful professional experience related to one's major, not all proposed internships will be approved. In addition to gaining approval for internship sites, students must meet the following academic requirement in the major: completion of IMCO 105 and MCOM 241 with a C- or better in each course. Registration is individually arranged through the department office.
