Enterprising communication students can make the city and surroundings their laboratories. Highly skilled adjunct professors and dynamic guest speakers who are leaders in their fields bring students’ coursework to life.

Given the extremely competitive nature of journalism and corporate communication jobs, we strongly recommend that every communication student do at least one internship.

Organizations throughout Chicagoland are a ready source of internships for Dominican communication students because of the region’s diverse economy and large number of media organizations and corporate communication departments. Dominican students have recently completed internships at many prestigious organizations, including:

  • NBC
  • Disney
  • WBEZ, 91.5-FM
  • Time.com
  • Roll Call
  • RedEye
  • Wednesday Journal
  • WLS-TV, Channel 7
  • WMAQ-TV, Channel 5
  • Kartemquin Films
  • Field Museum
  • Chicago Cubs
  • Chicagoland TV News
  • Continental Cablevision

Internships can be completed at any time during the year. Communication students have found their first job post-graduation as a result of an internship.
