A field internship is one of the most important undertakings in a student's entire college program and deserves the very best. Students who do not invest the utmost in effort do themselves and the college an injustice. In a sense, this is a test of the learning, the capacity, the sincerity of purpose and determination, and the professionalism of the student. Nothing less than top performance should be expected, and the intern should not overlook the importance of a good letter of recommendation from the supervisor. It will be of great value for job applicants.
The internship (JOUR 430) is required in all Journalism sequences, and typically is done between the junior and senior years. Students may complete an internship during the academic year, and some take the internship as their last quarter before graduation. You should consult with your adviser as you decide your timing. A minimum of 240 working hours is required to complete the internship, and in most cases the internship does not allow time to take other classes.
