A key element to moving forward with a career in journalism is the internship. Students will be required to seek out, interview for, and secure an internship at a media outlet. The internship will give them real-world experience, allow them to network with working professionals, and better prepare them for post-graduation. During the internship, students will be required to interview someone from the professional environment. They will also be required to create a work for their portfolio using the resources at the internship.
