The College of Southern Nevada’s (CSN) Department of Communication Internship Program (JOUR 290/COM 196) allows CSN students to gain practical, real-world experience before completing their degrees and entering the job market. Students enrolled in the Journalism/Media Studies and Communication programs not only gain the experience employers are looking for, they also gain a better understanding of their chosen field. An internship is a requirement in the Journalism/Media Studies Program. Since students are paying tuition for this, it is important that the student gains experience relevant to their education and not just do menial tasks or provide free labor. Preferably, students are paid for their internship.
