Strengthen your education

Your Journalism professors encourage you to take your educational experience beyond the classroom walls. It’s the best way to gain a glimpse into your future in journalism and find your true passion. An internship with our partners — or any organization of your choosing — will strengthen your skills and give you real-world experiences that will help you in your future career. The following are just a few of many incredible companies that our students have teamed up with to complete their internships:

  • 13WMAZ
  • Alabama Media Group
  • Billy Penn
  • Cape Community Newspapers in South Africa
  • CNN
  • Disney
  • Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Macon Bureau
  • NASA
  • New York One (NY1)
  • The Charlotte Observer
  • The Chicago Tribune
  • The Emmy’s Foundation
  • The New Orleans Times-Picayune
  • The Telegraph
  • WMUB

Go abroad

Beyond your internship, we offer various study abroad and Mercer On Mission opportunities to practice what you’ve learned at Mercer University and apply it to real-world experiences.

The journalism program sends students every year to document a Mercer On Mission trip and shed light on important issues. When you return from your mission, you will take your findings and create a journalistic piece — either video or print — and show the community the results of your adventure. These experiences will sharpen and grow you as a student and person, improving your intellect on a wide variety of subjects.
