With its history as a developing country, Ghana is an important place to do your TV, radio, and newspaper journalism internships. The Journalism programs we offer fall under Print or Newspaper Journalism, Radio Journalism, and Television Journalism.
If you are already a working journalist or a student, this is a chance to broaden your horizon and enhance your resume with work experience in a different culture and society, or maybe a different medium.
Under the internship program, the interns engage in daily project activities. Most of the time, the director of the project will work to help you successfully complete your field report.
In order to get the most out of the internship, we recommend at least 2 weeks of language and culture immersion program because many times language barriers hinder the effectiveness of the internship.
