About Wall Street Journal, The

With a circulation of 2.02 million, The Wall Street Journal is unquestionably one of the top news journals in the country. Since its establishment in 1889, the Journal has reported on news and political issues that directly affect the U.S. business industry. In 2008, the newspaper was purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. Since then, there has been a lot of turnover at the Journal, including the replacement of its top editor with Robert J. Thompson, as the newspaper has evolved. The new Wall Street Journal is a more general interest paper, with additional political, national and international news, shorter stories and more hard news on its cover. The newspaper also launched a lifestyle magazine, WSJ, in September 2008.

The journalism internship at The Wall Street Journal gives undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to explore journalism careers in business news and information reporting. Journalism interns work in one of the Journal’s many news bureaus located throughout the country.


Open to all current undergraduate and graduate students. Prior internships with other newspapers and/or extensive experience on a campus newspaper is preferred.
