The communication practicum, headed by Dan Steinberg, introduces students to the world of communication careers. Students are required to complete two hours a week of practical experience with an organization of their choice. With opportunities spanning the sports, fashion, and non-profit industries, students have the chance to explore, observe, and engage in real-life communication practices and make connections with professionals all across the Columbus area.

Sophomore PR major Heidi Olander spent her practicum hours working with The Columbus Crew Major League Soccer team.

“I had a lot of fun working with the Crew and I thought it was a very valuable experience,” said Olander.

Current practicum participant and junior PR major Alicia Contrascier has been serving her hours with The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation.

“My practicum with The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation has been amazing,” she said. “I work with incredible people who are so helpful and really thankful for me being there. Getting real experience at a real company is so important and I’m so lucky that I was able to find something in a field that I’m interested in.”
