Practicum Testimonials

Listed below are testimonials of students who persued a practicum in the Communications Media department.  Practicums are offered for one to three credits.  If you are interested in doing a practium, please contact a professor you would like to work with in the department to check their availability.


I am a sophomore Communications Media major doing a one-credit career orientation practicum with Dr. Lamberski.  I am interested in photography for my career, so Dr. Lamberski set up a program for me to research and call people in the photography field.  At the end of the semester I will hand in an analysis report about what I learned from my research.

Dr. Lamberski has been incredibly supportive and helpful during this process.  After all my research I have a better idea of what I want to do with photography:  become a photo editor.

I am a senior Communications Media major working with Dr. Lamberski implementing websites using Web editors such as Dreamweaver 4 and Microsoft Frontpage.  I have created a number of brochures for clients using Adobe Pagemaker 7 and Microsoft Publisher.  Also, my practicum emphasizes the troubleshooting of hardware/software installations and maintaining computers in Dr. Lamberski's office.

I have found the practicum with Dr. Lamberski both challenging and a great learning experience.  Doc is very generous and a great man to work with.

I am a senior Social Studies Education major, Communications minor, doing a three-credit practicum with Dr. Dudt.  He and I work together designing instructional aids for his graduate classes. He is also teaching me how to use the teleconferencing equipment and how to implement technology into the classroom.

This practicum is helping me gain practical experience I can put on my resume and is giving me knowledge that most undergrad students do not have.
