Internships

 

The Writing Internship offers English majors and minors an opportunity to apply and enhance their writing skills by working for community agencies in the Chippewa Valley

Is a Writing Internship right for you?

A writing internship offers numerous advantages that students normally do not experience in the rest of their academic coursework:

  • An opportunity to work in “real-world” contexts on practical communication challenges.
  • Contact with professionals in the Chippewa Valley who can serve as valuable professional and community contacts.
  • A focus on issues of professionalism and career development.
  • An opportunity to build a professional portfolio of documents and publications that demonstrate your abilities to potential employers.
  • Some internships are paid!
  • All internships fulfill your service-learning requirement.
  • You can earn college credit for your internship by registering for Engl 498.
