Edinboro University is committed to ensuring that students are fully prepared for
life in the professional world. That's why we offer fantastic internships and job
opportunities for students in the Department of Communication, Journalism and Media.
Hands-on, real-world experience is hard to beat. Edinboro University recognizes that
experiential learning is a valuable tool in helping you to make career decisions and
in complementing formal classroom learning.
While some Edinboro University majors require an internship, cooperative education,
student teaching or research experience in order to graduate, many students elect
to pursue an internship to augment their educational portfolio. Every major has one
or more designated internship directors to assist students with identifying opportunities
and coordinating credits.
