Internships

The Writing Internship Program

The English department’s Writing Internship Program puts students in a professional environment, working with professional writers on real-life problems. Current placements include positions in a museum, a newspaper, a publishing house, an advertising agency, a software company, a technical magazine and a variety of other businesses and organizations that employ writers and editors. Positions are available both on or off campus, and the internships are available in Spring, Fall, and Summer programs worth from one to six credits.
