English 4900 - Internship in Writing and Editing
Internship In Writing/Editing, 1-12 hrs. Grades S/U. Fall, Spring, and Summer. On-the-job work experience individually tailored to student's career orientation. Permission of instructor required.
Check out the Internship Handbook OR read an article written by a professional writing student about planning an internship: "Finding the Best Time to Intern."
As an intern you will gain valuable hand-on writing and editing experience over the course of a semester or during the summer working with experienced professionals. Working with the English Department's Internship Coordinator, you will identify possible internship opportunities, either those currently available or those you develop to meet your specific professional writing goals and needs.|
The English Department has developed working relationships with a wide variety of local and regional businesses, agencies and on-campus units, all of whom express a strong interest in working with our interns. These opportunities include placements with museums, public relations, community outreach agencies, publishing firms, non-profit organizations, and literary and other magazines and journals. Internship opportunities are not limited to the local Boone/Watauga County area.
Because planning an internship takes time, you will need to see the English Department's Internship Coordinator at your earliest convenience, particularly if you wish to intern during the summer.
Variable credit: 1-12 hours
