T. Howard Foundation Internship Program | Posted September 12, 2017

The T. Howard foundation is back to recruit Towson students for its internship program! Last year the foundation hosted an info session which over 50 TU students attended. Ultimately, eight students were selected for their internship program (a large percentage of their final talent pool!). The T. Howard Foundation’s mission is to promote diversity in the media and entertainment industries by increasing the number of diverse and underrepresented groups and underserved communities working in the industry. They do this by placing college students from these underrepresented groups into internships with some of the leading employers in the industry: HBO, BET, Comcast, NBC/Universal, Discovery Communications, ESPN, Facebook, Showtime, Viacom, and many more!

This year’s info session will be held from noon – 1 p.m. in Van Bokkelen 204 on Wednesday, Sept 20th. The event is for students in all majors interested in working in the media & entertainment industries (not just those in the communications and media majors). There will be a limited amount of first-come, first-served pizza as well.

Maryland State Bar Association Communications Internship | Posted August 30, 2017

The Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA) is a voluntary, non-profit membership organization comprised of approximately 24,000 attorneys and judges across the state of Maryland.

Our Communications Internship opportunities are based out of our Baltimore headquarters location, but interns will extensively cover events in the field, which may require travel to other Maryland counties. These internships provide an opportunity to experience a journalist’s role and to be part of a communications team working both in print and online. Interns work closely with the Communications Intern Supervisor to cover Association events, conduct interviews, write articles, and take and process photographs and video. Interns can expect to have their work published in print and online on a regular basis. Each intern is expected to handle on average two (2) assignments per week, to be identified and delegated by the Communications Intern Supervisor. Total estimated time, per candidate, would be 10-15 hours per week for a period of one (1) semester (approximately 12 weeks). This estimate is based on planning/consultation with Supervisor, associated travel, time onsite, and editing/processing. There will be an option, if mutually agreed upon by both the intern and MSBA, to extend this duration for an overall period of up to 12 months.

Internships are paid. There is a weekly expectation of 10-15 hours per week, but schedules are flexible and will vary. This is an excellent opportunity for a communications/journalism student seeking to build their portfolio.

You will need to provide a resume and cover letter which outlines your goals for an internship.

  • Hours Per Week: 10-15, Flexible
