What is the internship program?
The UMCom internship program offers persons who have some prior training or experience in communications but limited expertise or work experience in the field an opportunity to get that experience. Typically, an "intern" will work closely with a UMCom staff person until it is evident that he/she can function with less direct supervision.
A crucial element of the program will be the internship contract between the intern, United Methodist Communications and the sponsoring institution (if any).
Internships may be as short as one month and as long as one year. Fieldwork placements can be considered internships.
