One advantage of going to U of L is being in Louisville. The city provides a huge selection of internships, so check out the internship page to see the wide variety of opportunities available locally.
Students can now sign up for the 2013 study abroad trip to Panama. We spend the month of May (leaving after Derby, of course)in Panama studying intercultural communication and Spanish. Contact Professor Al Futrell for details. If you aren't interested in Panama, then think about going to Ireland. Professor John Ferré will be taking some students to Ireland in May 2014. And if you would rather stay in the States, Professor Selene Phillips will be taking students to a Native American reservation during spring break. Check with her for details.
The Comm Dept continues to be a leader in offering Distance Education courses at U of L. This venue of learning offers great convenience and a wide variety of courses. In fact, a student can earn an entire Comm degree online. Consider the Distance Ed courses if your day to day schedule makes it difficult for you to take traditional courses. Be sure to contact Professor Walker or Professor Ashlock for help in choose the right courses to take.
