Internships

The Department of English invites students to apply to our internship program, which offers undergraduates the opportunity to sharpen their research, close reading, critical thinking, and communication skills in a professional environment. These internships are competitive and reward qualified, self-motivated students who seek to explore different career possibilities while still working on their English majors.

Each semester, the English Internship Program offers junior and senior English majors with a GPA of 2.5 or higher the opportunity to apply for placement in a semester-long English internship for 3 academic credits. The Department of English provides up to 20 internship opportunities for our students. English also allows students to solicit their own internship.

Beginning in Fall 2017, English interns are required to attend class meetings once a week on Tuesday afternoons at 3.30 p.m. Class attendance is mandatory.

To register for the course, you must first complete the following:

  1. Read the list of available internships and complete an Internship Application (marking your preference for positions). Applications to participate in the English Internship program in Fall 2017 are due on March 3, 2017.
  2. Mark your calendar to schedule a 30-minute meeting during the week of March 20-24. Internship placements are contingent upon the completion of a successful conversation about your interests and career goals with the Internship Director.
