Process of Internship in the English Department

To find the right internship for you, you’ll need to explore a number of different kinds of career opportunities: look around your community, think about the world outside it and click around on the internet. When the time comes, you’ll “test out” at least one of these opportunities--before major life decisions are involved. In that exploration, be sure to reflect on your life goals.  We’ll help you integrate them with internship options.Reflect on your faith and what it will mean for you to do God’s Work.  We’re committed to helping you integrate your faith life with your academic pursuits, and the internship adds a practical application for that process. You gain from your internship:

"Experience, experience, experience. My parents and professors emphasized this to give my future the necessary boost. In my internship at The National Constitution Center in the Marketing Department, I felt privileged to be a part of a team committed to completing a project which would benefit society as a whole."
