Resources & Opportunities
The journalism program believes internships prepare students for successful careers and requires that minors complete one in consultation with their journalism advisor. Because Beloit is near major cities like Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, and Rockford and is located in a small city, internship options can be both traditional and unconventional.
Many journalism minors opt to complete their internships at national news outlets such as WGN-TV, the Nation or at news outlets in Washington, DC. Others pursue local internships at the Beloit Daily News or the Janesville Gazette. Other students have pursued internships writing copy for political campaigns, working in marketing for the Milwaukee Brewers, designing and editing newsletters and publications for corporations, or helping the homeless put together a weekly newspaper.
