Summer 2022 Communications Internship Projects

During the four-week internship (May 23 - June 17, 2022), interns determined a list of questions for Global Health Studies alumni that would be of particular interest to current and potential GHS students, including how alumni found the Global Health Studies Program and how alumni use their coursework and degrees in their current jobs. Interns then conducted interviews with alumni and organized the responses into profile articles. In the process, they gained experience with writing and editing for online publication, practiced effective text and graphic design, and used the information they gathered to brainstorm further promotional strategies for the Global Health Studies major, minor, and certificate.
