Journalism/New Media students are highly encouraged to take at least one internship during their academic careers. Students earn one credit for each 40 hours of internship work. Please note the following guidelines:
- Students should begin the process of obtaining an internship by visiting the Career Center’s Web site.
- Every student must have a faculty supervisor. Only full-time faculty can supervise interns. Faculty who can supervise students in the Journalism/New Media track are: Jenny Atwater, Sean Baker, Charles Flippen, Beth Haller, Kim Lauffer, Thom Lieb, Sandy Nichols and Stacy Spaulding.
- Internships must be approved by the unit coordinator (Prof. Beth Haller ) if they are not on the list below.
- All Journalism/New Media track students must pass either MCOM 255, Newswriting, or MCOM 258, Journalism/New Media II, with a C or better before doing an internship.
- To qualify as a Journalism/New Media internship, the student’s work should focus on news, features, photography, editing, broadcast or online content creation, not on promotions or marketing.
The following list includes preapproved local and national sites at which Towson students have successfully participated in internships.
