Potential and Past Internship Providers

Past and Potential Internships

Note: These are some of the places that have provided internships for Weber State communication majors in the recent past or have sought internships with WSU students. This does not mean that internships are currently available. Also, listings are organized according to concentration areas, but that does not mean the internships listed only apply to students in that particular area. Students are encouraged to look through all listings.
