Many English majors and PPW Certificate students find internships a profitable way to combine their academic work with practical job experience. An internship develops important contacts that may lead to jobs or at least to decisions about your post-graduation career, gives you a look at the workplace in a communication/writing-related field, and expands your college experience.

Almost all internships are for academic credit, though occasionally one will offer some pay in the form of a stipend as well. Writing, PPW, and Literature majors and PPW certificate students are encouraged to do more than one internship, but they may not do more than two internships for credit, and only one in a given term. Film Studies students can only count one internship (up to 3 credits) as an elective for the major. Students may receive pay and academic credit for the same internship.
