Student Media at the University of South Carolina offers students the opportunity to gain experience in print, broadcast and online media, advertising sales and graphic design.
Student Media consists of The Daily Gamecock newspaper, Garnet & Black magazine, SGTV and WUSC-FM. All students are invited to participate in one or more media groups regardless of major, year in school or previous experience. Volunteer and paid positions are available. In addition to obtaining specialized skills, many students have used their experience to earn internships and jobs following graduation.
