Internship opportunities

IUPUI students have served as interns at the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League, the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the National Federation of State High School Associations, among other organizations near the campus in downtown Indianapolis. The internships are a central feature in a program of 30 credit hours that combines specialized course work with practical experience. The courses reflect recent advances in a rapidly-evolving industry that requires storytelling skills in print, broadcast and digital journalism across multiple platforms. The degree requirements can be completed within one year and do not include a thesis.
