Course: Advanced Internship (MKVN11)
MSc programme course
There is a shorter internship option of 15 credits. This course is given on the undergrad level, which means that you only receive the grade Pass or Fail, and that you have to combine it with something else, such as a course at the department or any other department/university, to fit the MSc programme structure.
How do I choose where to intern?
Students graduating from the programme are prepared for professional opportunities in research education, academia, media and cultural industries (including journalism), national and international policy and production sectors, commercial and public service organisations, and NGOs.
We recommend you consider your master thesis as well as your future career/interests when choosing where to apply. As a programme student, we believe your priority should not only be finding out what your interests are. What do you feel passionate about? What are you curious about? Students who manage to focus on their interest usually end up with a better thesis than those who only choose ‘strategically’, i.e. what they believe future employers might be impressed by.
Read through the documentation on the right hand side of this page. They contain a lot of information relevant even as you go through the application process. As you are the one applying, you need to be an expert on how the course works, to be able to pitch yourself.
Think wide: as MSc students of media and communication studies, you have a broad profile in social sciences and cultural studies that fits in many different parts of the professional world.
