COMM 461 - Washington Internship and Experiential Seminar


Delivery: Lecture
Prerequisites: JR standing; either PR 200 or COMM 250; and min GPA 2.33 in COMM courses approval by the RWU Washington semester Communication advisor
Fulfills Internship requirement in the Communication majors
Participants in the Roger Williams University Washington experiential learning program work four days a week for the entire semester as interns at placements arranged, after extensive consultation with the students, by the Washington Center (WC) that occur either in Washington D.C. or in one of their Internship Abroad locations. Interns perform such work as research, attending meetings, writing reports, preparing briefings and other Communication related tasks. The experiential seminar, which meets weekly, provides an academic context in which students discuss, reflect upon and analyze their internship experiences, and relate those experiences to their major and other college courses. Interns design a learning plan, do an organizational analysis, write a reflective journal, and compile a “portfolio of learning” that is presented at the end of the term. The journal is reviewed regularly by the Center or Institute instructor. All materials are evaluated at the end of the term by an RWU faculty member.
