Choosing an Internship

Since writing internships come in a wide variety of types and locations and since many businesses and institutions are actively seeking writing interns, interested students always find a valuable placement.

  • Placements may be selected from our own extensive list of supervisors and institutions seeking English majors. You are welcome to find your own placement, but it must be approved by the internship director, Ruth Fairbanks.
  • The internship can be on or off-campus. Travel time does not count toward your internship hours. This is important to consider when choosing an off-campus internship. You will also be expected to provide your own transportation to and from an off-campus internship.
  • It may be helpful to talk with students who have recently completed the internship you are interested in.
