Internships and Careers

Wherever compelling storytelling matters, you’ll find media and journalism graduates at work.

Wherever critical thinking and solid reporting make a difference, you’ll find graduates of the School of Media and Journalism excelling. And wherever multimedia platforms are used to inform, engage and persuade, you’ll find growing demand for the skills and experiences made possible by a Media and Journalism degree.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that careers in media and communication will continue to grow through 2029, due to the demand for creating, editing, translating and disseminating information through a variety of platforms. The average salary for media and communications occupations for 2020 was $61,310, according to BLS.
