Welcome back Communications students!

On Wednesday, September 9 from 9:30-12noon in Dewberry Hall, the
Communications Department will host their annual Welcome Back
. I wanted to personally invite you to visit our table to learn more
about how and where you can earn COMM credits abroad through
The Center for Global Education (CGE).

This Winter Break, CGE's ever-popular Public Relations Program
in London
will run for the 10th consecutive year. Led by the COMM
department's Professor Mike Dickerson, the program will fulfill 3
credits in COMM 392 in just two weeks.  


Students who participate in the London PR Program often network and
set themselves up for a
Hybrid Semester Internship in London the
following year, where students are placed with PR firms like
The Bell
Pottinger Group
 as they earn 6 graduate or 9 undergraduate credits,
some of which may even be in Communications.

Another great opportunity to earn COMM credit abroad will come next
summer in
. In just two years time this program has become one
of CGE's finest, in part because of the great leadership of
Dr. Cathy
, the program's faculty director.


While on the Milan program students earned 3 COMM credits plus 3
more credits in their choice of ARTH, FAVS, FRLN, TOUR, or HIST or
3 more COMM credits
. Click on

student who went on last year's trip!

If money is an issue, keep in mind
scholarships and financial aid  can be
applied to the programs.
