Career & Internship Support

Communication studies students are highly versatile and qualified to work and intern at a variety of public and private organizations in Baltimore and beyond.

Communication Studies opens up endless career opportunities. Check out this detailed list of potential job titles for COMM majors! Through our foundational outcomes of advocating change, engaging difference, and leading with purpose, our students raise their oral, visual, and written literacy through critical thinking, problem solving, and team building.

“ My internship has allowed me to develop my talents and gain real-world experience to prepare me for the future. Through completing different projects and assignments I have improved my organization and communication skills in ways traditional classes cannot. After finishing this internship, I feel much more qualified and confident in my abilities and I am excited to see what the future holds. ”
