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.
