Internships in English
The English faculty strongly suggests that all majors be provided an opportunity to work in a professional setting to apply the writing, analytical, and interpersonal skills they have developed through their course work.
In cooperation with the various organizations in Indianapolis, the internship program places eligible students in positions that will afford them both work experience and academic credit. Potential sponsors of English majors as interns include advertising, public relations, public service, and arts institutions, as well as governmental agencies.
Student interns employ their skills, establish contacts outside the University, and gather valuable career experience and information. Internships can be either paid or unpaid as the primary purpose of the program is educational rather than remunerative.
