Does COMM. 498R have a syllabus? What do I need to do to earn credit? Do I have to fill out a weekly report?

  • Once you are registered for COMM. 498R, you'll have several assignments, all available on I-Learn. Weekly progress reports are not necessary, although Sister Bair is happy to hear from you any time you want to share what you're learning and doing.
  • Toward the end of your internship, your internship supervisor will need to log in to the Career Navigator to evaluate your performance. This evaluation will, along with your assignments, be a factor in your final grade.
  • Please note that if you quit or are terminated, you will not receive credit for your experience. You'll have to apply for an internship another semester. But don't be afraid of this happening. Virtually all students who approach their internship with a good attitude and a desire to learn have positive experiences. They achieve great things professionally and personally and are successful ambassadors for both BYU-Idaho and the Church. In fact, many students have received internships with a company because another BYU-Idaho student before them created a good impression of the university.
