The Writing Internship Program

The Writing Internship Program is designed for undergraduate English majors and minors (or non-majors pursuing the Writing Certificate) to:

  • gain professional writing and editing experience before graduation,
  • discover the functions and effects of their writing outside of the classroom, and
  • experience the multitude of ways that they can target strong and varied writing skills to a specific position or career.

To apply, students should have completed (or be taking during the time of the internship) one of the department's advanced writing courses:  Report & Proposal Writing, Business Writing, Technical Communication, or Web Writing.  Students can seek the assistance of the internship coordinator, Nicky Adams, in finding an opportunity or can arrange their own internships through professional contacts.  Students can also earn course credit for their work through ENG 485, Writing Internship.
