Hands-on experience

In addition to students working in cooperative education and internships, students in the Elliott School of Communication have opportunities to gain serious hands-on experience as part of their class work. ESC faculty work to create project-based learning experiences in which students put theory and strategy into practice. Students gain skills and confidence through these projects, which aim at engaging students with the community. Check out these examples:
