Internship Program

ENG 395: Internship in Writing

The English major is one of the most versatile a student can pursue. English majors learn to think critically and rhetorically and to write clearly and precisely. These skills and abilities equip students for a wide range of careers and occupations. English graduates from USF have obtained positions in fields such as education, marketing, human relations, technical writing, law, and library science, as well as a variety of positions in both the corporate and not-for-profit sectors.

ENG 395: Internship in Writing provides students with an opportunity to explore their vocational aspirations, or to tailor their education to individual needs and interests. While engaged in an internship--either on campus or within local businesses and organizations--students will work with both a local supervisor and a faculty internship coordinator. To register for ENG 395, students must be English majors with either junior or senior status and the consent of the English faculty.

The Career Services Office provides additional information regarding the internship program at USF, including the necessary forms and a listing of businesses and organizations actively seeking interns. However, students are not limited to any list, but encouraged to identify and pursue any opportunities related to their interests and needs. For additional information about the internship program, students and advisors should contact Mary Fedders at the Career Services Office.
