   Students enrolled in our part time program frequently do internships but only a few students in our full time degree programs are able to manage internships during the course of the academic year.  Internships must be journalistic in nature, the weekly time commitment is limited and The Journalism School does not offer academic credit for internships.  We are eager to hear about opportunities throughout the year, although our focus is on opportunities for students upon and following graduation. At that point, they become a great pool of candidates for full time jobs, paid internships, fellowships and part-time positions in your newsroom.    
   If you have an internship you're trying to fill, you must provide a full description of the scope of work, hours required and indicate if the position is paid or unpaid. The Office of Career Development will not post openings that are primarily administrative and are not newsgathering in nature. Internships must comply with U.S. Department of Labor regulations

The Journalism School reserves the right to refuse publication of any job notices. We do not accept listings for marketing or public relations internships, nor from non-news media companies seeking candidates for positions that are not related to journalism. We do not accept blind postings. 

If you're seeking candidates with broader interests, visit Columbia University's Center for Career Education or Barnard College's job listing service.
