Each semester, BizComm students complete semester-long internships for credit. Each student has to complete at least one internship in his or her last semester at Stevenson, but some students complete more than one for extra experience and credits.
In spring, 2015, students will be completing internships at many different organizations including, but not limited to, SocialToaster, the National MS Society, Archbishop Curley High School, Stevenson University Admissions, GoMustangsports, the Business Communication department, Maroon PR, KDG Advertising, Gramercy Mansion, WBAL-TV Sports, Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, WXCY-FM radio, Run for Cover Records, and Once Upon a Crumb.
On Tuesday, November 18, public relations expert Sandy Hillman, EO of Sandy Hillman Communications, visited Stevenson University to talk to BizComm students about her career in communication.
After the internship poster session, Ms. Hillman spoke to current interns along with other students and faculty about what it means to work in public relations and how she got her start in PR in Baltimore by working with former Mayor William Donald Schaefer. Her talk was part of the annual lecture series called the "Shapiro/Rouse lecture in Business Communication," endowed by the department's mentor and friend, Ron Shapiro.

Each year, starting in January of 2013, the business communication department has brought students to a new part of the world to teach them about different cultures in an advanced intercultural communication class. Past trips have included London, England, and Dublin and Galway, Ireland.
During spring break in March 2015, some business communication majors will be traveling to Puerto Rico with Dr. Deric Greene and Ms. Christine Noya. The students and faculty will get the chance to see the rainforest, Old San Juan, and Loquillo, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. (Photo from the New York Times)
