The Boston Globe was founded in 1872 by six businessmen and purchased by The New York Times Company in 1993. Today, The Boston Globe is one of the most prominent daily newspapers in the United States and the leading newspaper for the New England area.
The Boston Globe’s internship program gives college students a peek into the journalism industry, offering experience in different areas of the paper. Most interns work as “general assignment reporters” in the metropolitan section, though some are assigned to work in sports, arts or business. Intern positions are also available in the photography and design departments, as well as with the news copy desk. Each intern works with a writing coach/intern supervisor, and the program includes weekly seminars on journalism issues.
Open to all undergraduate students, as well as journalism graduate school students who have not had professional experience as a newspaper reporter. Applicants must have had at least one prior daily newspaper internship, a driver’s license and be able to type at least 30 words per minute.
