Internship Opportunities and Practical Experience

Nearly all jobs require experience, and the internship program in the Media department is designed to provide students with supervised observation/experience in areas such as advertising, public relations, social media, video production, marketing, web development, sports media, journalism, and promotions/event planning. The department has numerous corporate and nonprofit sponsors in the Pittsburgh area and has placed students in internships from New York to Los Angeles.

In addition to the internship program, the department has significant on-campus organizations that provide excellent opportunities to gain practical experience and build a multiplatform portfolio.

Beginning in the fall of 2014, a student majoring or minoring in Duquesne Media can take up to six credit hours of internships, up to six credit hours of independent studies or up to six credit hours of practicums. The combined total of credits from Media internships, independent studies and practicums cannot exceed nine credits.
