Experiential Learning

In addition to internship opportunities available within the Departments of English, Communication, and Media Study, students have the opportunity to intern at national and local television news stations, news radio stations, web publications, daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, and alternative presses. Please see the program directors for internship opportunities.

Students are encouraged to pursue research-oriented initiatives with faculty whose expertise relate to this course of study.

Study Abroad

The Journalism Program offers a winter study abroad course in foreign reporting. The class travels to Berlin, where students learn about 20th century history, meet foreign reporters who work at institutions like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Der Spiegel magazine. Students create two pieces of original journalism that get published in the student newspaper, The Spectrum, upon their return.
