With its history as a developing country, Ghana is an important place to do your tv,radio and news paper internship journalism. The Journalism programs we offer fall under Print or Newspaper Journalism, Radio Journalism and Television Journalism.
If you are already a working journalist or a student, this is a chance to broaden your horizon and enhance your resume with work experience in a different culture and society, or maybe a different medium.
Under the Ghana TV, radio and news paper internship program, the intern engages in daily project activities. In most cases,. As an intern, you stay with host families who live near the project in which you are involved. Most of the time, the director of the project will work to help you successfully complete your field report. Please contact RVO if you need any help locating information and materials for your internship program.
In order to get the most out of your internship position in Ghana, rvo recommends at least two week of language and culture immersion programs because many times, language difficulties hinder the effectiveness of interning. These programs will provide you with a necessary, comprehensive start in exploring the every day issues of Ghana. Furthermore, it is possible to organize extra tutorials with experts in particular areas for additional fees. RVO suggests that you correspond with us if you have special needs for your internship.
