Work Experience

Work Experience

Real world experiences

Journalism students are encouraged to complete two non-credit semester-long work experiences (with a 12 full-time work week minimum) in the communications field during their program, but are required for graduation purposes to complete one such supervised work experience.

To be eligible, all students must complete a range of prerequisites. Because work experiences are professional placements, the program chair can, for a fixed period, deny eligibility to any student who has acted in an inappropriate and unprofessional manner during the preparation phase. Any student cited for professional misconduct during a work experience, and/or receives an assessment of Unsatisfactory for professional misconduct, may be required to withdraw from the work experience and/or the program, subject to terms of the Student Code of Conduct.

International opportunities

Among the international education options open to you, are exchange opportunities in Europe, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.
