Communication Studies 195 allows students to receive academic credit for a summer internship. Students are able to take the course for 4 units and must remain enrolled through the duration of the session in order to receive credit. Your faculty mentor will be Tim Groeling, although Pia Svenson will be your primary contact and you will submit your final project to her (either via email or in person). All of the work for the course will be done independently and you will not have to meet with the faculty mentor. Your final grade of pass/no pass will be based on the 10-12 page paper that you turn in at the end of the term. To find out more information on summer school fees and deadlines, please see the following site: www.summmer.ucla.edu.
