The Department of Psychological Sciences  has once again placed all 13 of its Clinical Psychology graduate students who applied for internships at APA-accredited sites this summer.  According to Psychology Department Chair Maria Zaragoza, Ph.D., nationally, the match rate to all internship sites was 80%, and the match rate to American Psychological Association-Accredited internships sites was only 62%.   

"In the clinical psychology field this is the equivalent of medical students being "matched" to a residency," Zaragoza said.  "Needless to say, we are very proud!" 

Hannah Potes, a senior pursuing dual degrees in photojournalism and Spanish, has become the first JMC student selected for a paid 10-week paid summer internship at the Orange County Register.

After completing internships at the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky (2011) and Jackson City Patriot in Michigan (2012), Potes sought the West Coast internship “to break the Midwestern trend.” She was also attracted by internal changes now occurring at the Register and its new focus on community journalism, which she considers her specialty.

For Kent State electronic media major Katy Coduto, working this summer as a publicity intern at renowned record label company Warner Brothers Records is a dream come true.

Coduto, who also is the program director at Kent State’s TV2, has always wanted to work in publicity and public relations.

“I realize how lucky I am to be working at Warner Brothers. I love publicity and public relations, and this is only solidifying in my mind that I’ve chosen a career I am going to love,” Coduto says.

Kent State University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication has launched an internship database designed to streamline communication between students and intern employers.

Michele Ewing, associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the public relations internship coordinator, helped create the database after recognizing an opportunity to use the Web to help better connect students to potential intern employers.
