Work and internship opportunities​​​​​​​​

Students in our program have many work opportunities in media both on and off campus.​


Internships serve as a bridge between classroom knowledge and building an impressive resume and portfolio.  


Jacob S. Miller is spending his summer as an intern with the Cleveland Browns. He is studying to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations with a minor in psychology.​


“One thing of note that I would pass on to any younger students considering internships: do not simply settle for doing the work that is given to you. Here at the Browns I have been encouraged to get in contact with and sit down with the higher management personnel to learn the inner workings of the ENTIRE organization. I’ll learn the finance side, the corporate partnership department, the content teams strategies, and even  talk to the president of the organization so that 1) I have the opportunity to network with people outside of my own department because you never know who you might meet and what connections they might have, and 2) the more you know about business as a whole the better you will be as an employee in any specific department for any company. “​

 

Jacob has the opportunity to film practice, player interviews, community events, fundraisers, post-practice press conferences and many other things.

In the journalism program, students have many opportunities for internships at high-profile corporations such as WTOL 11-Toledo, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and CBS radio.


Working in a field relating to digital media and journalism allows students to gain an enhanced understanding of how to apply skills learned in the classroom to situations that will be faced beyond graduation.
