About this course:
Internships are an important first step in resume building, developing a professional network, and getting your foot in the door. The Journalism Internship offers certificate students in advanced standing an opportunity to acquire real-world experience, providing a crucial link between the classroom and the field. Interns work a minimum of 90 hours during one quarter and earn 3 units of elective credit toward the Journalism Certificate. An Internship Coordinator (a UCLA Extension journalism instructor) monitors the internship throughout to ensure a substantive learning experience. Students must earn a passing grade of "C" or better in order to receive credit. Most internships are unpaid; however, some offer a modest stipend and/or flexible working hours.
