Internships in Media Studies

Media Studies majors are encouraged to expand their understanding of the discipline through an internship taken for academic credit. Students can register for MS 196-PZ: Media Internship, where they work in a media related industry or institution. That work is integrated with significant and clear connection to the academic curriculum. MS 196 can be taken twice for credit. Paid internships are not eligible for credit. Internships can be found independently by the student or in consultation with Media Studies and the departments of career services.

Finding an Internship

Students can find their media internship through the Media Studies internships listed on Sakai, on their own, in consultation with a faculty member, with the help of their campus career services office, or through the resources available at the Media Studies academic office. Listed below are some sources to help you get an idea of the great possibilities that are available for you.

How to Register for MS 196

Students should complete the Internship Proposal Form and submit a PERM for the course on the Portal.

Internship Advisors

Students registered for MS 196 must find an Internship Advisor (IA), who may be any faculty member or the Media Studies Academic Director.
