Internships

General Information


Internships can be a great way to get real-world experience in the media fields, such as filmmaking, television, radio, advertising, marketing, public relations, digital media, journalism, and more. They can also help you learn about which aspects of the field you enjoy most. In media internships, you will not only learn how film and media industries operate and influence the public, but also develop technical skills and business savvy. Some students even turn their internships into jobs after graduation.
