Become a mentor

The School of Journalism started a mentorship program to help students connect with media professionals. Freshmen, transfer students and others who are enrolled in Principles of Journalism (JOUR 105) — or have taken the class recently — will be matched with UA journalism alums and other professionals. Through these initial contacts, students will learn how the media industry operates and is changing, how to find an internship and how to grow a network of contacts. Email Internship Coordinator Kelly Copley for more information.
