The Sentinel offers college and university students in all major fields substantive internships covering a variety of news stories. You may be writing a feature about a 90-year-old bracero one day and covering a stabbing another. You won't be writing obituaries. You will write a few briefs. You won't be filing. You will get the chance to do stories of your choice. Summer internships are 8-10 weeks. Internships during the year also are available. Students typically receive credit for the semester from their home institutions - and gain invaluable real-world work experience that substantially strengthens their chances in the competition for jobs or graduate and professional school admission.
