Paid internships

Opportunities for paid internships in journalism and related fields are available to all students on a competitive basis through our site Journalism Opportunities. Former students have interned at a plethora of sites, including The Montreal Gazette, Sportsnet, CTV, The Eastern Door and CJAD. Many students have also won the prestigious CBC News Joan Donaldson Scholarship, an intensive four-month paid internship at one or more locations within CBC News and Centres. Media outlets can submit job positions to be posted.

Internships for credit

Upper-year undergraduate students may undertake a practicum at a recognized media outlet, under the supervision of a senior journalist and with permission of the Department’s undergraduate program director for course credit (JOUR 450, Journalism Practicum). 

Co-op program

The Co-op program gives undergraduate journalism students the opportunity to alternate periods of full-time academic study with periods of paid, full-time work terms at participating media outlets in Montreal and other parts of Canada. Co-op students graduate with job-search skills, enhanced personal and professional skills as well as a year’s worth of work experience in journalism or related fields.
