Outside the Classroom
Intern for local companies
We want you to use the knowledge you gained in the classroom to grow deeper as a student and learn more about the world around you. That’s why we strongly suggest that you apply for an internship. If you have any questions, our faculty will guide you toward the internship that will benefit you most. Many students intern with local non-profits, public relations firms, Mercer University Press, and other incredible companies and organizations. By applying what you know in real-world situations, you are obtaining an education that cannot be compared.
Study in new lands
It’s true that by opening a book, you can be transported to a new place filled with intriguing people. Stories spark imagination and creativity in people in ways that other types of media cannot. But we encourage you to take your desire to travel one step further. Take part in our study abroad program. When you forego your comfort zone for the unknown and mix that with your education, you will grow and develop as a student and person.
