The IHS Journalism Internship Program places talented writers and communicators—who support individual liberty, free markets, and peace—at media companies and non-profit investigative newsrooms. Past interns have worked at 20/20, the Orange County Register, Reason.TV, Fox News, and many other companies and organizations. Internship placements are offered year-round, during the spring, summer, and fall. The internship is in four tracks depending on your interests: newspaper, broadcast, new media, and investigative tracks
Stand Out in a Competitive Job Market
Editors and producers seek individuals with work experience, and an IHS internship gives you the chance to publish stories in local or city newspapers, investigate political controversies, or help produce a live, talk-oriented program.
If you have an eye for news and want to get the story and if you believe individual rights precede government then start or enhance your journalism career through the IHS Journalism Internship Program.
