Student reporters look over notes


The Reynolds School of Journalism is committed to experiential learning and values hands-on experience. Every journalism major is required to complete JOUR 499, a three-credit internship course. Students work for 120 hours at a media organization creating media related to their focus of study. Students are mentored by professionals in the field, applying and honing skills from class at the work site. In addition, students must attend three professional development classes and participate in a private social media forum to practice personal social media branding habits. Classes are live streamed for students interning out of the area.
