In 1999, journalism professor Jiafei Yin formed a partnership with China's largest English-language newspaper — the
China Daily. Ever since, CMU journalism students have had the opportunity to travel to Beijing and gain real world experience as interns at the paper.
This month, Gaylord junior Ian Callison, Mason sophomore Paige Sheffield and Laingsburg graduate student Wyatt Bush will begin their internships at the China Daily. Armed with the extensive knowledge and skills CMU's journalism department has provided, the trio will have the chance to write daily feature stories for the paper and learn more about the journalism industry through hands-on experience.
