We currently offer up to 5 credits to students with internships, 1 to 2 credits per quarter.

To receive credit, you must complete five communication courses and fill out the Internship Form.

Interview to Internship (i2i)

Interview to Internship (i2i) is a Career Kickstart program that prepares students for life after college by giving them an immersive interview experience.

In i2i, company representatives looking to hire interns visit the UW Department of Communication for two hours to conduct 15-minute interviews with pre-selected UW COM students. Through the program, students have the opportunity to meet with a variety of potential employers and secure dynamic internships.

Past companies who have participated in our i2i program include: Alaska Airlines Magazine, Solid Ground, and JJ Caprices.
