Internships at UNCW Student Media

UNCW Student Media

Earn academic credit through the department of your major while building your media resume.

Students of junior and senior status are eligible for earning academic credit as interns working for our student publications. Our greatest need is for reporters, photographers, and copy editors for The Seahawk newspaper, and for advertising sales consultants.


  • Approval from the student media-manager
  • 126 hours of documented work by semester's end
  • Weekly editorial meetings
  • Training workshops in media law and media ethics (may be replaced by prior, relevant coursework)
  • Monthly meetings (minimum) with the assistant director for Student Media
  • Original weekly work submitted simultaneously to the intern supervisor and to the assistant director for Student Media
  • Additional meetings and assignments determined by the department of your major
  • Exit interview with the assistant director for Student Media

Some departments allow for campus internships to be repeated once, provided that the intern takes on new responsibilities that provide new learning. Contact your department's internship coordinator for specific guidelines and departmental requirements. Common "feeder" departments for Student Media interns include Communication Studies, Creative Writing, and English, although any relevant course of study may be possible.
