English Department Internship Opportunities

One of the best ways to prepare for your post-graduate career goals is to gain practical work experience through an internship. Internships provide an opportunity for students to learn more about their chosen field and to make valuable connections with professionals. The English Department offers a variety of internships to English majors and minors.

Summer 2012 English Department intern, Lara Graham, shares her experience at McCall's Quilt Magazine

"This summer I spent seven English Department Internshipsweeks doing an internship with McCall's Quilt Magazine and Quick Quilts in Golden,Colorado. Traveling so far from home for the first time was both exciting and extremely terrifying. Luckily, all of the ladies working at McCall's were friendly and welcoming. I was very happy that they treated me like a potential writer and editor, not just an intern who was only good for getting their lunches and coffee. I had the opportunity to write a significant amount of copy for both magazines, which was thrilling! I think my internship experience will benefit me hugely as I try to break into the workforce in May. I made some great editing, publishing, and art contacts in the office, and I know I will need all of them when I begin job applications!"
