Students working in Crested Communications, the new student-run agency in the School of Communication, are gaining real-world experience by producing public relations, advertising, and branding campaigns for real clients in the greater Hartford area and beyond.

“For students who are about to graduate, having the experience of working in a variety of arenas helps diversify their skills to be ready for a successful communications career,” says Sarah Miner, assistant professor of communication and faculty director of the agency. “Students who are interested in film or video production can also use their skills within the agency as many clients are interested in video content.”

Crested Communications is in a dedicated agency space in Abrahms Hall. The students are enrolled in the course CMM 464W: Student Firms: The Agency and are assigned work based on client goals and their career interests, making it a more personalized learning and professional experience.
