Internships and Jobs

For Employers


If you like to offer our students internship opportunities, please be aware of the following criteria, which will enable our students to receive academic credits.

  1. A full description of the duties required at the proposed internship and the skills the student expects to either learn or improve as a result of the internship.

  2. Full contact information including name, title, phone number and email address of the students’ on-site supervisor.

  3. Verification that the number of required hours for the internship (minimum 120 hours) will be met and a tentative schedule of days and hours to be spent at the internship.

  4. In general, internships will be approved if they involve online, print or broadcast journalism; public relations, advertising or marketing; filmmaking; or other digital communication roles that entail storytelling, digital media production or research.

  5. A written evaluation by the on-site intern supervisor on a form provided by the department, due the day after classes end. Follow this link to download the evaluation questions: Internship Supervisor Evaluation Questions.
