Career Placement for Communication, Film & Media Studies Majors

Career placement-Communications


Internships allow students to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in the field with guidance from trained professionals who work with the application of such skills on a daily basis. UNH encourages students to take the opportunity to acquire an internship.

Besides the obvious benefits of applying the lessons from classes, students have the ability to network

themselves, or make contacts for later in their careers. The more people you know, or that know you, the easier it will be for you down the road. Our students consistently have positive experiences that later lead to better opportunities and job offers.
