Our internship program maintains strong ties with industry leaders in the Dallas-Fort Worth region, the fifth largest media market in the country. This provides excellent networking and job opportunities at some of the nation's top newspapers, magazines, publishing companies, television and radio stations, web companies, and advertising and public relations agencies.
Students receive hands-on opportunities to use state-of-the-art video/audio technology, computers and software in our classrooms and labs. Our students gain real-world experience creating campaigns and projects for advertising and public relations clients. They produce content for broadcast, via Denton Community Television. They write material for magazines like the MAYBORN magazine. Students publish in the NT Daily newspaper and write online at DentonLive.com. They also have the opportunity to get professional experience at SWOOP, the Mayborn's student-managed advertising and public relations agency. The Mayborn is also home to Hatch Visuals, a non-profit, student-run media agency.
