Spring internship deadlines are Monday, Dec. 7 at 9 a.m. They are all virtual internships.
University of Delaware students are strongly encouraged to complete at least one internship before graduating. Internships can be taken during spring and fall semester as well summer. We do not offer winter internships.
Students should expect to work 12-15 hours at their internship during the academic year and 20-40 weeks during the summer (depending on the internship. They keep weekly blogs about what they are doing and should produce clips for their portfolio.
CREDIT: Here is the page that outlines how to get credit. If you take a journalism internship for professional writing credit, I still oversee that internship.
Some internships are paid. Some stipends are available.
Please watch the videos and make sure you know the publication before applying.
APPLYING: Here is a link to examples of resumes and cover letters – journalism applications are NOT like others. I am happy to look over your materials, but please give me a day or two notice as I am dead from grading.
