General Information

​The journalism minor gives academic credit for internships that provide journalistic experience. You must be doing some sort of reporting, writing or online updating related to journalism. You'll be working with interim director of internships Professor Deb Howlett, and the sooner you get in touch with her, the better. 

For all English Department internships that are not related to the journalism minor, contact Dr. Meg McGuire. 

Before the internship starts: Enroll in class & turn in paperwork

    If you need ENGL/JOUR credit:​

    • For fall and spring semesters, sign up for JOUR 464. It's a three-credit course and requires working at your internship for 12-15 hours a week.
    • You can take a total of six credits of JOUR 464 max.
    • For summer internships, sign up for ENGL469 in the second summer session. ENGL469 is a variable credit course, so work with the internship director on the number of credits you'd like to sign up for; three credits require 40 hours a week.

    If you have too many English credits:

    • ​​​You can sign up for UNIV 362. The internship director must give approval. This counts as elective credit.
    • You can take a total of six credits of UNIV 362 max.


  • All "before internship" paperwork is due the Monday of the last week of the semester.

After the internship: Turn in portfolio & evaluations from you and your mentor

The portfolio and evaluations are due the first week of the next semester. The portfolio should include a cover sheet and three to five clips. Both you and your mentor must fill out an evaluation.

For spring and summer 2018 internships: Internship deadlines start cropping up as early as October,  before your deadline to sign up for spring classes . So we suggest that you start looking for an internship as early as possible and sign up for JOUR464 for three credits.  We will do our darnedest to help you get an internship.  Although all journalism faculty are happy to talk to you about internships, it's important that you meet with Professor Deb Howlett to start the process. Dr. Deborah Gump, director of journalism, is also happy to meet with you.

In the fall semester, keep an eye out for news of an internship panel, where you can meet representatives from various journalism organizations in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Delaware.
