Students in the Journalism and Media Communication major can apply for a wide variety of internship opportunities. Students may also seek their own opportunities before arranging for credit through the Department’s internship coordinator, Kim Spencer.
The Department receives more requests for interns than can be filled, so there are many opportunities with hundreds of companies both in Colorado and out of state. These opportunities are most frequently found with news organizations, television stations, production companies, magazine publishers, reality television producers, public relations and advertising agencies, corporate and media relations departments, multimedia firms, and any other entity that needs professional communication expertise, including the University. Journalism and Media Communication interns have found great opportunities across Colorado, the U.S., and internationally.
Students must complete at least one credit of internship or practicum in order to graduate. Up to four credits may be counted toward graduation requirements.
PLEASE READ THE INTERNSHIP POLICY STATEMENT FOR AN OVERVIEW.
