The Public Relations Internship unit is normally taken in the break between 2nd and 3rd years and is subject to completion of specified prerequisite units and special application requirements. Interested students must liaise with the Faculty of Arts and Education’s Experiential Learning Officer and should review the online information at http://www.deakin.edu.au/arts-ed/internships/domestic/index.php
The unit offers students the opportunity to gain firsthand experience of public relations in the business world and to explore the practical applications of theories and case studies. It provides a framework from which students can assess their knowledge, skills and work preferences by participating in the practice of public relations. Internships assist with the networking vital to finding that first job.
