Newsroom Editorial Internships

The  internship application deadline for our Winter-Spring 2023 internship program is now closed.
The deadline for our Summer 2023 internship program is January 15.

Do you like digging in to find answers to hard questions? Do you enjoy captivating friends with a well-told story? The Christian Science Monitor offers paid internships to self-starters who have analytical skills, a basic understanding of world events, and can write and edit with clarity and precision. Audio and video skills are a plus. Come work alongside top-flight editors and writers in a dynamic newsroom that strives to show hope and progress amid a divisive media landscape. For those applicants who lean more toward business, ask about storytelling opportunities through the Monitor’s social media accounts.

Work Schedule: Paid and academic interns will work Monday through Friday, between 35 to 40 hours a week. Position is based in Boston, Mass. The Boston newsroom has returned to a hybrid work schedule. In-person work is expected for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

  • Fall internships run from September through December. Application deadline is May 15.
  • Spring internships run from January through the third week of May. Application deadline is October 15.
