Journalism Internships

The journalism department helps arrange internships to match your career interests and goals. Our students have completed internships in the media and related industries locally, nationally and internationally.


Benefits of an internship

  • Students meet employers' expectations of at least one internship by graduation.
  • Internships offer students opportunities to use their skills in a real-world context, gain experience and build their portfolios.
  • A successful internship indicates the student has the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to be successful in the workplace.
