- Editorial internships
- Creative & marketing internships
Baylor Line’s internships are paid and are available each semester (spring, summer, or fall) to current undergraduate students. The journalism internships, spread across the following three departments, all involve a mix of education, mentorship, and real-world training in modern-day journalism in its many forms:
What we do: The editorial department tells stories through words in written, audio, and video formats. Our specialties are long-form narrative journalism on topics from alumni profiles to covering the latest social issues on campus to great Waco food. No matter the subject matter or approach, our mission remains simple: to inform and entertain Bears across the generations on the past, present, and future of the Baylor Family.
What you would do: As an editorial intern, you’ll pitch story ideas, transcribe interviews, fact-check smaller assignments, aid in the digitization of 75+ years’ worth of archived content, assist with writing/research projects for various other BL content channels, and research a wide range of topics, from food and true crime to politics and culture. An intern with special interests and/or a tenacious attitude will likely be able to take on projects specially tailored to their interests or strengths.
Interns also participate in regular skills sessions with our editor-in-chief that delve into writing, editing, fact-checking, and other aspects of journalism.
Hours: 10 hours a week in the fall and spring semesters; 20 hours a week in the summer
Requirements: All reporting opportunities aren’t guaranteed, but they do crop up from time to time, so facility with language and various modes of communication — for print, online, and other digital outlets — is a must. A voracious appetite for storytelling and Baylor news is also highly encouraged.
