Internship in Media Research

House of Research offers the opportunity to complete a paid internship in communication and media research. For up to three months – or even longer in the case of mandatory internships – interns assist and increasingly work independently in all areas and thus get to know the working practices and methods of a modern research institute.

Our clients include media companies as well as federal and state ministries, NGOs, associations and more. Thematically, we deal, for example, with media content analysis, market studies, evaluations, topics of health communication and tourism research. We use qualitative and quantitative methods of empirical research.

Clients include: the Goethe-Institute, the Federal Centre for Health Education, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM), the Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Operations of the State of Berlin, Deutschlandfunk, Diakonie, the German Nutrition Society, the Clubcommission Berlin, the Initiative Music, the Landesanstalt für Kommunikation Baden-Württemberg (LFK) and many more.
