Student Media at the University of South Carolina offers students the opportunity to gain experience in print, broadcast, online media, advertising sales and graphic design.
Student Media consists of The Daily Gamecock news organization, 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.

“Behind the Spurs: Excited, But Nervous,” a podcast produced through a partnership between The Daily Gamecock, SGTV and WUSC, was awarded “Best Podcast” by the College Media Association at its 2017 Pinnacle Awards.
Student Media gives Carolina students hands-on, real-world opportunities to explore the worlds of journalism and broadcast entertainment while they’re still on campus.
