Studying or interning abroad experience for a CCI student means:

  • Understanding the field of communications from an international perspective
  • Expanding your career opportunities
  • Advancing your cross-cultural and problem solving skills
  • Improving foreign language abilities
  • Fulfilling major, minor and general education requirements
  • Developing a Global Professional Network

Experiences like this may change your life and enhance your career options in many ways. With today’s increasingly interdependent world, the significant cross-cultural experience is often what employers and graduate schools seek.

Academic Planning for Study Abroad in Communication and Information

Communication and information students can study abroad at any time once they have completed at least two semesters at UT. Transfer students may study abroad after completing one semester at UT. Students should meet with their major advisor in Communication and Information as early as possible to plan for the most academically useful experience abroad.

Participate in Field Study/Internship and Experiential Learning Opportunities

Participate in an internship to further immerse yourself in the culture and community of your study abroad program. Check with Career Services about the Intern in Ireland program which is aimed directly at Communication and Information majors. Experiential learning abroad programs can often be structured to fulfill major requirements if you think creatively and plan in advance with a communications advisor. Examples include incorporating your experience into a major project, honors thesis, or independent study course.
