Project Censored is a student-faculty media research project in its 31st year of operation at Sonoma State University. The Project needs student interns to help with our research, writing, production and promotion. Of a book we publish yearly “Censored: The News That Didn’t Make the News.” Student interns also post important news to our website, produce television documentaries, represent the Project on radio and in public presentations, and planning fundraising events. 1-4 Internship Units can be earned through Sociology, Communications Studies or other departments. Interns work from 45-180 volunteer hours during the semester on one of the following teams. All positions have training components for students to learn duties required.
