Intersections of Civil, Critical, and Creative Communication (I-4C)
The I-4C Collective mobilizes resources from rhetoric, performance, and critical-cultural studies to explore the intersections of civil, critical, and creative communication. Through our collaborations, faculty members and graduate students generate research that illuminates our understanding of the human experience in its cultural, contextual, and sociopolitical dimensions.
The Health Communication Initiative (HCI) collaborates to inspire health and wellness of individuals to communities through innovative communication research and advocacy.
Our mission considers the complexities of health in an increasingly global world and provides guidance and locally-specific solutions that advocate for healthy individuals and societies. We clarify and elaborate our mission below.
Do I need to have an internship set up by the application deadline?
No, the application is for admission to the program, not for getting your specific internship approved. Getting a specific internship approved is a separate process. Apply for admission to the program even if you haven't found an internship yet. The application is available on the Information for Interns page.
The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication is home to a dynamic internship program! You can find our interns in large and small companies, in unique government positions, or thriving non-profit organizations. Our program allows career-driven, practical students to gain useful experience in challenging positions. Interns are often asked to accept a permanent position at their internship site, and organizations continually tap into our pool of available interns. We are proud of our ability to attract top organizations and driven students.
