Spring grads/young reporters: Have you got what it takes to cover a challenging beat?  Do you have the reporting and news writing skills to cover government and politics on a daily basis in the pressure-packed environment of the Illinois Statehouse? And earn a master's degree at the same time? That's the opportunity awaiting you in the University of Illinois Springfield's one-year MA program in Public Affairs Reporting. The PAR program is a unique blend of classroom study and real-life work experience featuring a six-month internship during which you'll earn academic credit working as a full-time reporter in the Statehouse pressroom for a major metro, regional chain, online public affairs magazine, wire service, radio outlet or TV station. Along the way, you'll pick up scores of clips, hours of broadcast reel, or dozens of megabytes of multimedia content as impressive proof to your next prospective boss that you can cover a very demanding beat at the highest professional level. You'll also receive a $585/month stipend and a tuition waiver during the internship. Applications for fall, 2019 are due April 1.
