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:

Internship Program Requirements:

  • Be a second semester junior or senior with at least 22 credits completed

Consult with your graduate program coordinator to determine eligibility.

Internship Program 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.
