Nothing looks better on a journalism school graduate’s resume than professional work experience. 


That’s why we at the school encourage all our students to invest their time and energy in a professional internship before graduation. And that’s also why we’re so grateful to the professionals who share their workplaces and wisdom with our majors to give them the kind of learning experience not found in a classroom.


Internships are invaluable for all our majors: Strategic Communication, News-Editorial and Broadcast Journalism. Academic credit is available for those who qualify.
