Abstract
  • Students, educators and journalism professionals agree that internships are the surest route to post-graduation employment in the newspaper industry. The three groups dedicate significant amounts of time and money to ensuring appropriate internship placements, but frustration persists on all sides. Using the newsgathering method outlined by Yopp and McAdams in 2003, this nontraditional thesis examines several structural factors of newspaper internships. Specifically, this includes the industry's trend toward offering fewer internships, racial and socioeconomic diversity issues, students' frustrations with the internship application process, and the difference in newspapers' philosophies for internships.
