Overview journalism internship in South Africa

Complete a journalism internship in South Africa in preparation for your professional career. Our partner organization has the opportunity to search for an internship for you individually. Journalism is the term used for the work of journalists in the press, online media or the radio. A journalist collects and assesses information and creates posts for press, radio and television. Usually, journalists publish matters of general, cultural, political or economic signification.
As most journalistic posts are for created for public purposes, they may influence the public opinion and therefore have to be written in a neutral form. There is no predetermined specification in the journalism branch. Therefore, journalists specialize in a certain topic during their career, such as sport or politic. 

Journalism is a liberal profession, which means everybody who is working in the press, radio or online media can call themselves a journalist. Because of that reason it is not possible to find the study program, which prepares for that profession.
