Develop your leadership skills in intercultural contexts. Travel with 12-18 other students to Guatemala and Honduras or Kenya in the summer for interdisciplinary studies in leadership, intercultural communication, and geography. Stay a few weeks longer—on your own—and serve in a communications practicum position. If you like adventure, you’ll be drawn to our travel studies.
Our practica program provides part-time work and experiential learning during the regular school year in a communications job that also earns you credit toward your degree. Students can work at local newspapers, public relations companies, OMNI Television, and a range of other corporate and non-profit workplaces.
MARS’ HILL, PILLAR, AND REEL
Mars’ Hill (student newspaper), Pillar (yearbook), and Reel (video yearbook) are student-led projects providing opportunities for journalism, photography, and film students to contribute to campus life.
The co-op program offers full-time employment for pay during work semesters in a communications job. Three work semesters earns the student a co-op designation on the B.A. diploma. You can do a co-op locally or back home during the summer.
