In the department of journalism and digital media, we believe in the importance of real-world experience for our students before they graduate. That’s why we require an internship for both the digital media journalism and digital media production majors. An internship provides an excellent opportunity to get a first hand look at a potential career path while making valuable contacts with people already working in the industry. Our internship coordinators work with our majors to help them find possible internship locations and then help prepare their resumes and cover letters to make sure they get chosen. We also choose one student each year for our endowed internship with NewsChannel 5 in Cleveland, Ohio. This intern receives a stipend and gets to work behind the scenes in a major-market news operation.
