Our students can connect with exciting internship opportunities as English majors. Typically two or three of our majors or writing minors travel to London each year, where they intern with public relations firms, publishing houses, and professional organizations. Students might alternately serve as Editorial Interns for Issues in Writing, a nationally-recognized scholarly journal published by our department that features articles on writing in Education, Business and Industry, Science and Technology, Government, and the Arts and Humanities. The student editors are directly involved in the process of editing, publishing, and distributing an academic journal. Finally, four to six students per year opt to become Biomedical Writing Interns with the Office of Scientific Writing and Publication at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation and so gain valuable experience and training in scientific/biomedical writing.
Juniors and seniors may work as writing interns throughout central Wisconsin primarily at city newspapers and publishing houses. UW-Stevens Point has regular internship placements with the Portage County Literacy Council and with Midwest Review magazine.
