The KRQE internship program provides college students interested in journalism and communications a unique opportunity.    The hands-on experience allows students to get an in-depth look into the field of broadcast from an array of perspectives and challenges students to use their knowledge in an applied industry setting. All positions are for college credit only and usually last 8 to 12 weeks.

Interns must be full-time students of a college or university either in or entering into their junior or senior year and receiving academic credit for their internship assignment.

Internships are unpaid and all interns must provide a letter from their academic advisor certifying they are a junior or senior and will be receiving academic credit for their internship.

Interns need to set up an hourly schedule in advance with their supervisor that will sufficiently meet their school’s required credit hours.
