WUSF Internships

The goal of WUSF is to provide its interns with a substantive, meaningful work experience so that each intern concludes the internship period with demonstrable skills in his/her area of interest, plus a knowledge of public media, in general.

WUSF offers internship positions on both a paid and non-paid basis.  Each position varies, however, in terms of the total weekly commitment, the specific hours worked, and the responsibilities involved.
