Digital Media Management Learning Opportunities

Whether you’re interested in gaining experience by shadowing industry professionals or are looking to get involved on campus, there are many opportunities to expand your knowledge outside of the classroom at MSUM.

Although School of Communication & Journalism majors are not required to have an internship, it is highly recommended. Dozens of advertising and PR agencies and businesses in Fargo-Moorhead have realized internships can provide needed services for their company while giving beneficial experience to local college students, so there are multitudes to choose from. Recent students have interned with the following organizations among dozens of others:

  • Absolute Marketing Group
  • AdShark Marketing
  • Co-Schedule
  • DogIDs
  • Green Bay Packers
  • Minnesota Wild
  • Sundog
  • Trollwood Performing Arts School

Our student advertising and public relations (ad/pr) agency, Flypaper Creative Services, takes on real projects for community and campus clients. The organization runs with a professional ad/pr agency model. A team consisting of an account manager, designer, copywriter, PR specialist, event planner, and social media specialist develops materials for clients. Professionals in the field of ad/pr mentor the students throughout each project.
