Internship & Career Opportunities

Internships

English majors have pursued internships in a variety of fields and locations, depending upon student interest and placement opportunities. Students in the past have completed rewarding internships at publishing houses, art centers, museums, and an international toy company, just to name a few.

Students enroll in English 3810 or English 4810 and receive academic credit for their internships, oftentimes gaining experiences that complement and augment their in-class studies. Internships can be set up for a range of credits, depending on the degree of the intern’s responsibilities, and quite often students complete their internship experiences over the summer, thus not delaying a timely graduation.

Castleton’s Career Services is available to help you at any stage of your internship hunt.
