Young reporters/college seniors: Do you believe facts matter? Are you committed to providing audiences the accurate, unbiased information they need to be fully engaged citizens? Would you like to level up your reporting and news writing skills to meet the challenge?


Then the Public Affairs Reporting program at the University of Illinois Springfield is for you. Our 10-month master’s degree program is a unique blend of classroom study and real-life work experience featuring a six-month internship where you’ll be a full-time reporter in the Illinois Statehouse press room for the IPF's Capitol News Illinois service, a large- or medium-sized newspaper or alternative weekly. Internships for television and radio stations are available, too.


During the internship, you'll receive a $3,510 stipend and a tuition waiver, but more importantly, you'll garner scores of bylines on significant stories about key public policy decisions. With those kind of credentials, the placement record for our graduates is excellent. 


Sound intriguing?  For more information, contact program director Jason Piscia at (217) 414-1033, e-mail jason.piscia@uis.edu, visit www.uis.edu/par or follow us at fb.com/UISpringfield.PAR or twitter.com/UISPAR. We’re accepting applications for fall 2020 class throughout the summer. EOE.
