|Prior experience and future careers go hand in hand. Obtaining relevant work experience prior to the career search is a must. Some students hold part-time jobs in the fields of Communication or Telecommunication Media Studies, and others have significant volunteer experience that has prepared them for the future. However, interning is a great way to explore career options and enhance marketable experience and perspective.Communication and Telecommunication Media Studies students are prepared for many career paths. Following is a sample of the careers that our Former Students hold.
Let us know your dream and we will let you know how Communication or Telecommunication Media Studies will lead you toward it!
Some students choose to do internships on their own and to simply note this experience on their resumes. Please contact us so that we may help you note that on your transcript, as well. Others desire to earn academic credit by participating in the internship course, COMM 484.
To apply for academic credit for an internship related to the Communication major or Telecommunication Media Studies major, students must first acquire a position. The Undergraduate Studies office provides frequents leads to internship options via email, the TAMU Career Center posts internship opportunities, the Department of Communication Alumni Advisory Board provides notice of internship options, and then students often use their own networking and connections to find internships.
If you have secured an internship, have a minimum 2.5 gpr, and have been a COMM or TCMS major for at least two semesters OR a COMM minor with at least 12 hours of COMM, please contact Prof. Nancy Street, Internship Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting.
The Alumni Advisory Board, comprised of Former Students from Communication and Telecommunication Media Studies, provides workshops and mentoring to assist current COMM and TCMS undergraduate students in their job search. Additionally, each COMM and TCMS major is required to participate in the Success Initiative: Degree Check-up program early in the Junior year. This audit and conversation conducted by the Advising Staff, help the student to make final adjustments in course selection and to refine goals for additional skills and experience development. Beginning with the Freshmen year, COMM and TCMS majors are urged to work with the TAMU Career Center to prepare for the job search.
