Sussex Publishers is the parent company of the magazine Psychology Today and is based in New York City. The magazine—Sussex’s most prominent—prides itself on covering the latest research personality, cognition, health, relationships and neuroscience accurately and engagingly. Psychology Today has been growing in popularity outside and inside of its field.
Psychology Today is Sussex’s only publication that boasts an internship program. Interns are primarily accepted into the magazine’s editorial department (the only one with an organized internship program). Because the office staff is small, hands-on experience is guaranteed. Expect heavy research responsibilities delegated by staff editors. Interns also pitch and write short pieces, predominantly for the news section of the publication.
Open to college students with strong writing skills. Preference is given to applicants with college and graduate degrees who intend to pursue journalism. A background in journalism is a plus, as is course work in psychology.
