Media Studies majors are encouraged to expand their understanding of the discipline through an internship taken for academic credit. Students can register for PI MS 196: 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. These internships may be done twice for credit. Students should also specify whether they are taking the course Pass/NC only, and which semester (Fall/Spring) their internship will take place. Internships can be found independently by the student or in consultation with IMS and the departments of career services.
Internship advisors: Students registered for PI MS 196 must find an Internship Advisor (IA), who may be any faculty member or the IMS Academic Director.
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 IMS academic office. Listed below are some sources to help you get an idea of the great possibilities that are available for you.
Internship Resources: Students can find a list of internship resources and databases of internships that are available to Media Studies students.
