PRJ - Internships
Major in Public Relations


Internships are a key component of the Public Relations and Journalism department at Utica College. They provide students with invaluable real world experience, networking opportunities and the chance to put into practice what’s learned in the classroom.

Every student in the Public Relations and Journalism Department must complete a minimum of one internship. Most students complete two or more.

Our students have obtained internships at several high profile organizations, including National Geographic, Black Entertainment Television, Bose Corporation, the New York Daily News, and the Baseball Hall of Fame.
