International Internships in Journalism

World Endeavors Journalism interns are propelled into the vastly growing and ever changing environment of media, from learning new technology to processing information that spans worldwide. Often assisting with English-language publications in countries where English is not the primary language, our interns have opportunities to write articles, report on local events, and liaise with the public during their journalism internship. By interning abroad, interns also become better informed about the world and ready to report on international issues.

Journalism interns will have the chance to get direct experience with the news creation process, learning the ropes of reporting and of working within a news organization. Journalism internship responsibilities include planning and writing articles, conducting research and interviews, proofreading/editing, and taking photographs.
