An internship is an important part of the educational process as well as a primary step of career preparation. The internship program at UF’s Department of Public Relations will help public relations majors gain the professional experience needed to begin a career in the field. Faculty strongly urge all majors to complete at least one internship prior to graduation.
Noncredit internships may be taken at any time and do not require department approval. Academic credit for internships is available by applying for PUR 4940—Public Relations Internship. The course is a Professional Elective that fulfills Block 3 requirements. It can be taken for one to three credits.
