Biosciences. Economics. Engineering. Latin American Studies. Political Science. And, yes, of course, Student Media is home to many-a-Journalism major, too. The University of Arizona boasts more than 300 academic disciplines, and students from all are encouraged to find their place in Student Media. While some positions offer paid work experience (this include newsroom leadership and business operations roles at KAMP, UATV and the Wildcat), so many students from a multitude of backgrounds and academic ventures find their creative and service-oriented passion fulfilled as part of the Student Media family.
The Daily Wildcat employs about 100 reporters, photographers, copy editors and page designers during the school year, and about 20 during the summer. Turnover does occur in mid-semester. Reporters cover and write about news, sports and entertainment events and are assigned to a specific section of the paper. Photographers will shoot feature photos, sports games, meetings and other events. Copy editors should know AP style and have a good eye for detail. They generally work evenings. Page designers also work evenings and should be familiar with page design software such as Indesign. Though no prior journalism experience is required, reporters and photographers will be expected to submit an application and samples of their work. Pay is typically by assignment; editors are on salary. Most of our reporters are volunteers who are gaining real-world experience.
