Internships are highly recommended to gain hands-on experience. MSUM offers many non-classroom opportunities to help students excel, gain experience and build their resumes. These include Communicators in Action, Ad Club, Public Relations Student Society of America, Society of Professional Journalists, The Advocate, Campus News, horizonlines. org (an online magazine), KMSC, as well as blogging on Area Voices.
Students may also gain valuable experience through the university’s New Rivers Press, a teaching press offering an opportunity to learn the art and business of publishing.
