English Department Internship Program
"Internships should be an integral part of every student's college experience. I completed 4 internships during my time at NC State and each one was a valuable, credible experience to add to my resume and wonderfully useful as I narrowed down future job possibilities." --Carley Miller, '12, former intern with Safari Professionals
"[The internship] class was absolutely the wake-up call I needed to start my life in the 'real world'." --Emily Lomax, '12, former Intern at the North Carolina Department of State Treasurer
The English Department's Internship Program provides students with an opportunity to get workplace experience and college credit at the same time, while helping them to develop as professionals.
The internship consists of a workplace practicum of 120 hours a semester and a 3-credit-hour course. For most students, the course will count as a free elective. Your adviser can help you determine if the course will count toward your major. The course will count toward all the listed minors.
For details about the Undergraduate Internship Program, go here: ENG 350.
The fall/spring program is open to juniors and seniors in all College of Humanities and Social Sciences majors and minors.
English majors and minors who have successfully completed ENG 350 are eligible to do a second internship for credit during the summer as an independent study. Follow the instructions found on the Second Internship page.
Graduate students interested in work experience may want to consider taking ENG 522 Writing in Nonacademic Settings.
The internship program helps students get on-the-job training, employers find gifted students who need professional experience, and the university understand how our work in the classroom complements experience in the workplace.
