Academic Opportunities

Internships

A variety of internship experiences is possible in all departments and programs of the Park School. Internships are normally taken during a student's junior or senior year. Sponsors include local, regional, national, and international television, radio, advertising, public relations, motion picture, educational, and corporate media organizations, and the communication and training departments of many corporations and nonprofit organizations.

Internships are available during fall and spring semesters, as well as during the summer session. They may be repeated with variable credit awarded up to a maximum of 6 credits per experience. Students must have completed at least 60 credits (including a minimum of 24 credits and two semesters at Ithaca College) before the internship begins. Students may not have more than three internships and may not receive more than 12 internship credits including those performed in London and Los Angeles. Students interested in an internship should obtain a copy of the internship guidelines in the Park School dean's office and consult with their adviser.

All internships in Los Angeles are administered through the communications program in Los Angeles (see below). Students who are interested in a London internship must apply through the Office of International Programs at the time they apply to study at the London Center. Internships are evaluated on a pass/fail basis only.

Independent Study/Project

An independent study/project offers students the opportunity to pursue historical, critical, empirical, and/or creative research in communications under faculty supervision. Areas of investigation are described in the course listings for each department.

Ithaca College James B. Pendleton Center in Los Angeles

The Park School offers an internship-centered, site-based program in Los Angeles. The junior- and senior-year program is open to all majors and minors in the Park School. Students have the opportunity to intern at a wide variety of organizations in the fields of radio, television, cinema, photography, journalism, public relations, advertising, and corporate and nonprofit communications. Los Angeles internships are for 6 credits only in the fall and spring semesters, and for 3 to 5 credits in the summer.

In addition to internships, students take required and elective courses in several communication areas. All classes are held at the James B. Pendleton Center, and students live in College-provided housing. Tuition is the same as on the home campus, and housing costs are similar to off-campus housing costs in Ithaca.

The Los Angeles program allows students to experience the cultural diversity of the Los Angeles environment and to make valuable contacts with the Los Angeles professional communications community, including many Ithaca College alumni.

Additional information is available from advisers or the dean's office.

London Program

The Park School participates in the London Center program through course offerings and selected internships. Students interested in studying at the London Center may obtain information from the Office of International Programs. See "International Programs," p. 507.

Washington Semester Program

Park School students also have the opportunity to participate in the Washington Semester Program, which is an internship-centered program in the nation's capital designed to meet the academic and professional interests of students from a variety of majors. In addition to a 6-credit internship, students enroll in two semester-long courses and up to three 1-credit academic seminars. The Washington Semester Program also provides programming for students to experience the richness of Washington's cultural and political life. For more information about the program, contact the Division of Interdisciplinary and International Studies, 350 Job Hall, 607-274-3113.

Minors

Communication plays an important role for students in a number of disciplines. To serve these students, the Park School offers several minor programs. The cinema and photography department offers a minor in still photography. A minor in journalism is offered in the journalism department. The organizational communication, learning, and design department (OCL&D) offers a minor by the same name. Minors in the television-radio department are audio production, integrated marketing communications, international communications (note: there is currently a moratorium on acceptances into this minor), and scriptwriting. Details of these programs, including enrollment restrictions, are given in the following pages under the respective department listings.

The number of seats available for some minor programs may be limited. Students normally apply after their freshman year. A student must apply to be accepted into a minor.

Course Duplication -- A course that fulfills a requirement for a student's major and minor programs is counted toward the major. The minor discipline determines whether that requirement is to be waived or how else it must be fulfilled. In this context, a required course is one specified by number and title.

Dean's List

The dean's list in the Roy H. Park School of Communications is made up of majors in each class who meet all the following criteria during the semester:

· A minimum semester average of 3.70

· Completion of a minimum of 15 credits, of which at least 12 are graded, not pass/fail

· No final grades of D, F, or I

Academic Advising

All students in the Park School are assigned an academic adviser. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their adviser prior to registration for classes. Students are also encouraged to meet with their adviser if they are planning to study abroad or in Los Angeles or Washington, D.C. Students completing their junior year are advised to meet with their adviser to ensure that all graduation requirements will be met by their anticipated graduation date. Any change in a student's academic plan, such as adding a minor or second major, should first be reviewed with that student's academic adviser.
