The National Journalism Center

NJC Intern on the job

Since 1977, the National Journalism Center has trained aspiring journalists in the values of balanced, responsible, and accurate reporting. Weekly seminars and on-the-job experience provide participants with the tools to become leaders in combating bias in the mainstream media. 

Seminars include talks with prominent journalists or public policy experts, writing exercises, reading assignments, and current event and policy discussions. Interns spend the majority of their week on assignment with a media outlet, learning from professionals in the journalism field.

The balance of real-world experience and hands-on academic training provides students with a competitive edge in the internship and job market after completing the National Journalism Center 12-week program.

 Here’s what some of our alumni are saying:

“The National Journalism Center was instrumental in teaching me basic reporting skills, which came in very handyas I began to work my way into a paid journalism job. And my internship with syndicated columnist Robert Novak gave me a bird’s eye view into how a true professional gathers information and produces timely reporting.”

- Peter Cohn, Fall 1999

Evans & Novak Intern

"The National Journalism Center’s internship program has exceeded my expectations in every way and given me confidence that there will be journalists during my lifetime, at least, that will strive to be objective while holding the government accountable."
