Welcome to the Internship in English Studies pages at Texas State University. The Internship in English Studies is intended to give English majors the opportunity to gain work experience in their career fields while employers are able to assess student workers with the possibility of offering full-time employment to those the employer finds most suitable.
The department’s goal in offering the Internship in English Studies is to enable students to gain practical experience in their career fields and in so doing begin to develop a portfolio of work they can use in pursuing employment after graduation. The department expects employers to treat interns as employees while ensuring that interns gain practical “real world” experience and learn what it means to write, design, and produce documents, films, and other media in non-academic settings.
