Research opportunities

Internships are often the gateway to the professional world. At Furman, it's not unusual for organizations to offer full-time jobs to students who have served as interns. Many Communication Studies students complete a paid or unpaid internship in their area of interest.

Where have Furman students interned? The list is long. You'll find opportunities with advertising agencies, public relations firms, radio and television stations, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
