The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism offers a unique summer internship program that not only gives students on-the-job experience but guarantees they will be paid.
- All students in the M.A. in Journalism degree program participate in an internship during the summer between the second and third semesters. A summer internship is recommended, but not required, for M.A. in Entrepreneurial Journalism students.
- Every student is guaranteed a minimum of $3,000 for the summer. If the media employer doesn’t pay, we do. We know of no other school that does that.
- Our students intern at top media organizations and cutting-edge startups — from The New York Times, CNN, and WNYC to VICE, BuzzFeed, and Quartz. Some internships have led to real jobs.
- Students intern for a minimum of 280 hours. The three-credit internship is graded pass/fail based on employer evaluations and student reports on their experiences.
- The program is run by the Office of Career Services, which helps students in all phases of identifying and applying for internships.
- If you have any questions about our summer internship program, please contact Director of Career Services Andrea Stone.
