A minimum of 120 hours is required at the internship in order to earn 3 credits in a given semester. A student may complete a maximum of two 3-credit internships as part of a bachelor's degree program, but only 3 credits may come from the Department of Journalism.

  • Employer Internship Agreement
  • Students may earn up to 3 credit hours for serving an internship (120+ hours) and completing the Department of Journalism's internship class (offered every semester).
  • Formulate an internship description for the position needing filled. The internship must offer the opportunity for students to enhance their professional preparation or expand their career opportunities. The experience must contain meaningful, professional learning experiences.
