Student Resources

A complete undergraduate education in journalism occurs both inside and outside of the classroom.

Employers look for more than just a college degree on the resumés of recent college graduates. They look for distinguishing skills and experiences such as internships, community service, leadership, proficiency in technology or a foreign language. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the resources and opportunities available to you to round out your resumé, gain practical experience and demonstrate your commitment to the field of journalism.

Use this section to find out more about searching for internships and jobs, student media, awards and scholarships available to journalism students, Kappa Tau Alpha, the Journalism Honor Society, and links to professional organizations, Journalism Department alumni and salary resources.
