Internships Help Student Explore Career Options

Kirsten Henning is a junior in Communication who has had three internships to date during her time in CHASS. "It’s been beneficial to intern for a number of different companies," she says. "It allows me to try new things and gives me the chance to find something that I really enjoy."


NC State Students Bring Nonprofit's Work to Life

Two Communication students volunteered their skills and talents to a local nonprofit. Zach Swann and Cameron McCarty have created a video to help PLM Families Together tell the story of moving families from homelessness to places of stability and hope.


Internship Enables Student to Aid Immigrants

Emily Scotton ‘15 (front row, second from left) recently completed an internship that connected multiple dots between her career interests and her majors in Spanish and political science and her minor in nonprofit studies. In addition to practicing her Spanish, the Park scholar learned how nonprofits serve the community. What's more, Scotton -- who's interested in a law career -- got to see how immigration law applies in a nonprofit setting and even assisted in writing an affidavit. Think and Do!
