Internships


People with strong writing skills can get a job in any field.

From crafting and delivering professional messages to creative stories, the demand for strong writing and communication skills has never been greater.

That’s why we encourage English majors and minors to complete internships for credit while studying at WSU.

You can gain hands-on professional experience and give yourself an edge on the job market competition while also earning your degree.

Past students have interned at a variety of organizations and companies like Vector Marketing, Winona Post, Habitat for Humanity, Green Mill, and more.

You could find yourself interning as a:

  • Print and Web Copywriter
  • Journalist
  • Social Media Manager
  • Content Editor
  • Marketing Manager

Work with your English Department adviser and other faculty members to arrange your own internship. They'll walk you through the steps of registration.
