Other Internships and Externships

  • Looking for a way to get “real world” experience writing and researching?
  • Want to get involved in your community?
  • Interested in tutoring, teaching, or working in an afterschool program?
  • Eager to use your writing talents in a non-profit, corporate, or tech field?
  • Need to build your resume or portfolio?

If you are interested in completing an internship for college credit, please contact the Office of Internships first. The Office of Internships has a database of internship opportunities with approved community partners.

Internships are available to put your writing, teaching, and research skills to work in the community.  With a little bit of paperwork, and a 3-9 hour per week commitment, you can earn college credit while building your resume or portfolio.  This is your opportunity to “try out” a career while still in school!  Start this process early, as it takes some time to find an internship that "fits" your talents and needs.

See the Career Center and the Office of Internships for more information. Once you have identified a potential internship opportunity, make an appointment with Dr. Lush to discuss if you can receive Literature & Writing credit for your experience!
