About Internships

The Communication Studies faculty strongly recommend one or more internships during your college career at SUNY Oswego. Internships are academic programs tailored to the individual's specific interests and designed to fit within the student's academic schedule. Internships may be completed in the summer or during the fall or spring semesters. Here are just three important reasons for doing an internship:
