INTERNSHIP QUALIFICATIONS:

  1. INTERNSHIPS: You cannot do the program unless you have at least 12 hrs. in CSS OR at least 12 hrs. in JOU OR at least 15 hrs. in FDM (but we can permit a 12 FDM and 3 CSS combination). In semesters leading up to the NYC semester, students should REGISTER ACCORDINGLY this summer and/or fall. If he/she cannot meet this requirement by the time he/she is scheduled to go to NYC, he/she MUST CONTACT Dr. Kickasola immediately.
  2. ADDITIONALLY The categories in which a student has the requisite hours (see point 1 above) is the dept. in which he/she will take the internship™ you CANNOT assume that those departments will permit you to do whatever internship you want. For instance, if you have 12 hrs. in CSS and 3 hrs. in Telecom, you will have to do a SPEECH internship and CANNOT do a FDM internship because you aren't qualified for FDM. Which internships are acceptable as Speech internships will be determined by Dr. Bill English, who will oversee all speech internships for the NY program next year™ he MAY not approve an internship at MTV, for instance, because he MAY decide that this particular position is not related to the speech communication discipline and is more suited for FDM™. It's up to him. So, that's something you should think about.

IMPORTANT NOTE #1: Please note that all your courses should say "off-campus," not main campus. If yours say main campus, check the numbers and make sure you have registered correctly. If you have, then you should contact Elizabeth De La Garza in the Registrar's office™ see Ms.Spivey's email below.

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: Students often ask if they can take more than 12 hrs. while in New York™ the answer is "no," unless you can demonstrate extraordinary need to do so. The reason for this is not to make your life miserable™ there are lots of potential problems that arise when you take a schedule that deviates from what is described above. Contact Dr. Kickasola with any questions or issues.
