The Writing Program offers a variety of internship opportunities for credit.
Editing and Conference Planning Internship
Interns will help organize and participate in the Sixth Annual Undergraduate Research Writing Conference that will be held at the Livingston Student Center. Students will also work as student editors for a volume of academic research papers written by students in English 201, Research and Writing in the Disciplines.
The Writing Internship
The Writing Internship enables students to acquire practical experience in a variety of professional settings that draw on the skills in reading and writing that Business and Technical Writing and English courses develop. It also enables students to test the practical range of some of the ideas presented in their coursework and to experience first-hand some of the career possibilities available to writers. It may be used toward a Technical or Professional Writing Certificate or elective college credit toward graduation.
Students registered concurrently in most Business and Technical Writing courses (including 302, 303, and 425) may register for a Civic Engagement and Service Education Partnerships (CESEP) opportunity performing writing tasks in a non-profit organization. This program is formerly known as CASE.
The Douglass Writing Center
Interns enrolled in Tutoring Research Writing: Theory and Practice will research and develop effective methods for tutoring students in upper-level research writing courses, including Research in the Disciplines, Scientific and Technical Writing, and Writing for Business and Professions.
The Livingston Writing Center
The Writing Program offers an internship through the Livingston Writing Center that permits students to earn up to 6 credits working as in class TA’s. These students are assigned to these EAD classes: 151: 154: and 155.
