Internships

Interns Needed!

Various commercial and non-profit organizations in the Greater Portland area are interested in hosting interns for the coming semester.You can earn academic credit and gain valuable real-world work experience.

These are real-world opportunities to expand your knowledge base, develop new skills, and benefit from a close mentoring relationship with a working professional. A successful internship may be the best bridge possible for transitioning between classroom and career.

USM Media Studies alumni discuss the importance of the internship experience-- and how it led to employment-- at Lone Wolf Documentary Group, an award-winning production company that has produced programs for the History Channel and National Geographic Explorer.
