Students with a minor in Reporting & Documentary Storytelling will often intern at one or more media organizations during their time at UVM. RDS assists in making these connections for students, but encourages you to seek out opportunities using your own connections and passions. 

Contact Richard Watts for more information or visit the CAS Internship Program page.

Community News Service

RDS's signature program is the Community News Service, a student powered partnership -- with a focus on hyperlocal and local news -- designed to train and educate student journalists and to provide local content to community newspapers.
