Journalism Internships: Evaluation
"From the first day of my internship, when I contemplated quitting, to the end, a great transformation happened. This experience has opened my eyes to what it is like to be a full-time reporter. I learned so much from everyone I met, inside the newsroom and out. I'm confident now that this is a career I could work in every day and love every minute of it."

The UNH journalism director will be in frequent touch with you and your editor during your internship. Your supervisor will use a written form to evaluate your work in the middle and at the end of your internship, and will discuss those evaluations with you so that you can make use of the information. You'll meet with the journalism director at least once during the internship, and you're always free to call or e-mail if you have problems. We also set up a discussion board on Blackboard where interns can communicate with one another.
You will write a paper at the end of the internship, and you'll be graded for the internship course (English 720). Lots more information on all of this comes your way once you apply for, and get, a UNH internship.
