Missouri students travel abroad, establish their career network and interview for sought-after positions before they ever receive a diploma.
Studying and working abroad can provide a meaningful personal and professional experience as you immerse yourself in a foreign culture, meet new people and learn about journalism careers in different countries.
Both our international and domestic internship programs allow students to enhance their studies by offering real-world experience at internationally renowned media outlets and other up-and-coming media organizations. The majority of our internship programs are led by on-site faculty or program directors. Program directors help place students in professional media outlets and hold weekly seminars to discuss the country’s journalism industry, visit local media outlets and hear from guest speakers.Interns are able to earn journalism course credit as well as additional course credit in another discipline.
You can get your passport stamped in Australia, Denmark, England, France, Japan, Singapore, Scotland or dozens of other countries through the journalism school’s exchange programs. Our exchange program offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves into a life as an international college student. Participating students enroll in semester-long courses at host universities and spend their weekends sightseeing and soaking up the multicultural experience.
Short-term programs in the summer, mid-semester or winter intersession terms are a great opportunity for students who want to study abroad but do not want to miss a full semester. These faculty-led programs focus on media and journalism in international settings. Participants earn course credit and may also gain professional experience.
