The RTVF Internship Program
Welcome to the Radio, Television, Film Dept. Internship Program website.
Our department recognizes the importance of internships and offers junior and senior level students with a minimum 2.5 GPA the opportunity to take up to six credits in internship. We encourage students to experience the professional work place as they participate in our programs. We strive to provide our students with a comprehensive set of competencies which allows them to contribute to the world of mass mediated communication.
This website has been designed to create a convenient way for students, faculty, and internship sites to access the Radio, Television, Film Department Internship Program materials. You will find forms and course materials from the program. I hope these materials are complete and easy to use. Please reach me for program instructions or if you have any questions or concerns. If you are in need of direction towards an appropriate internship please feel free to set up an appointment to speak with me and make sure to attend the required internship workshop.

What are our students saying about their internship experiences?
"Working as a Production and Development Intern at VH1 allowed me the incredible hands-on experience and industry insight I wanted during my internship. Viacom’s employees are all extremely helpful, friendly, and professional.”
--Ariana Ringstrom, Class of 2017
"My internship with MSNBC’s Weekends with Alex Witt has been such an informative and exciting experience. I’ve learned the ins and outs of a live cable news broadcast while honing my research and writing skills — sometimes in the back of the shot! I could not recommend this internship more to anyone interested in broadcast news."
--Jennifer Sifferlen, Class of 2016
"Interning was a valuable experience as it allowed me access to a company that worked directly with many popular television shows and channels that I often watch and are highly regarded, such as HBO and AMC."
--Eric Crocombe, Class of 2016
