Careers & Internships in Journalism

What key factors distinguish an Emerson College education? Project-based academic preparation, participation in numerous co-curricular activities, and industry experience gained from internships and other employment opportunities. This is the kind of blend that will help you stand out in the marketplace.

Employers also value the ability of Emerson graduates to communicate concepts and ideas. Our Career Services Office helps you develop these and other business skills through individual appointments, workshops, industry panels and visits, and other programs that bring the world of communication and the arts to the Emerson campus.
