Internships and Career Placements

Internships

The internship experience provides students with necessary “real world” experience and helps them build professional portfolios. Some students opt to do internships for college credit while others do internships in addition to their coursework. Many of our students even do multiple internships. While there are several sites you can use to locate internships, two good websites to search for writing, publishing, and editing internships are BookJobs and Mediabistro. Students interested in participating in an internship and businesses or publications interested in working with Fitchburg State University English Studies interns should contact Dr. Steve Edwards.
