Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the advisability of service-learning internships as an institutional strategy within the curriculum of the Speech Communication Division, Department of Drama and Speech, UNC-Greensboro. The thesis was that this type of curriculum option would be an effective means of preparing speech communication students for careers in business and the community. A second thesis was that this option would become increasingly necessary as social, economic, and demographic trends constrain traditional career selections of speech communication students. Analyses of current trends established the need for a service-learning program in the Speech Communication Division. A service-learning model suitable for implementation was created. Both theses were validated. The recommended model was projected into a planning scheme and schedule.
