Campus and Regional Internships
Selected National Opportunities
The English Department also provides students with several internship positions within the department that give students the opportunity to explore career options, gain professional skills, and develop related work experience. Students can contribute to online and social-media content, help organize literary events, and support alumni outreach. Also, students can explore the Career Development Offices resources for locating internships worldwide. Credit bearing internships are open to any registered student who has completed at least 30 credit hours and has a minimum GPA of 2.0.
Students may earn up to 15 hours of internship credit per semester and may count a maximum of 24 hours of internship credit toward the 120 hours required for an undergraduate degree. No more than 6 credit hours earned in any combination of internships and independent studies may be counted towards the major.
Additional questions regarding English Department internships should be directed to the Associate Chair, Dr. Natalie Gerber, or Jennifer Wilkins, Internship Coordinator in the Career Development Office, Gregory Hall.
