All students who major in Equine Journalism are required to complete an internship in the field.
order to be eligible for an internship, students must be at junior
status in their major and must complete the Internship Seminar held by
the Wilson College Career Services Office.
Students often intern away from Wilson in various publication and
professional settings during summer sessions. There is guidance at
Wilson and numerous possible internship opportunities, but many of these
internships are competitive. Students are encouraged to seek out
internship opportunities that interest them. Though selecting and
winning an internship is a collaborative effort at Wilson College,
students play a key part in the process. Students can learn more about
internships by contacting the Equine Journalism Internship Director, Dr. Michael G. Cornelius.
Wilson Equine Journalism majors select internships through the American
Horse Publications organization. These internships are available to
college students who have an interest in horses and seek a career in
equine publishing. The AHP Internship Program is a great way to provide
students with the resume-building experience that’s so critical to
today’s job market. Interns gain valuable hands-on real life experience
and AHP members acquire additional help when and where they need it
most. AHP is the nation’s only non-profit professional association of
over 470 members dedicated to promoting better understanding and
cooperation within the equine publishing industry. Membership consists
