UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
As a Marketing Communications major, you are required to complete a 2-4 credit hour internship and/or cooperative work experience.
You are responsible for identifying the specific internship site for the cooperative work experience or internship.
Your academic adviser, course professors, and the Marketing Communications internship coordinator can suggest appropriate opportunities to pursue, but the Marketing Communications unit does not maintain a list of employers who will always be willing to take interns.
Many employers have formal, competitive internship programs while others are willing to create internship opportunities for an individual student or project.
College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) cooperative work experiences are listed as MARC 279. Each may be taken for a maximum of one credit per semester. The student should have completed Principles of Marketing Communications (MarComm 200) and some core requirements in the major.
College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) internships are listed as MarComm 379 and may be taken for two, three or four credits. Forty-five hours on the job can translate to one credit; 135 hours equals 3 credits. A prospective intern should have completed most core and elective requirements in the major.
College of Business and Economics (CBE) internships use the CAS internship registration.
College of Ag, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES) internships are listed as Ag Education 270/370 or Ag Economics 270/370 and may be taken for two or four credit.
