All Journalism + Media internships are credit-based and are completed per term/semester; students earn course credits while working 15-20 hours per week for a 3-credit internship.
J+M Internships are open to undergraduate, graduate, and international students. Internships are not required for graduation; however, all internships for credit must be approved in advance and monitored by the student’s faculty advisor or faculty internship coordinator.
All students must hold a minimum GPA of 3.0 in J+M courses (not overall GPA). In addition, students must satisfy the following requirements and pre-requisites:
- Be a second semester junior or senior with at least 22 credits completed
- MMC 3123
- JOU 3117 or RTV 4101 or DIG 3001, MMC 4302 and MMC 4631 (for digital media students)
- RTV 3531
Consult with your graduate program coordinator to determine eligibility.
International Student Requirements
You must meet either the undergraduate or graduate student requirements, depending on your academic level, and obtain a Letter of Permission from the selected corporation and submit it to the Office of International Students for approval prior to commencing the internship.
