Internships and Careers in English

An internship or co-op is an educational plan which integrates classroom experience in industrial, business, government or community-service work situations. It allows students to translate academic principles to action, to test career interests and to develop skills and abilities through carefully planned and supervised programs related to the degree they are seeking.

Close liaison between the university and the firm, institution, or agency providing the work experience is essential to a quality internship/co-op. The university will assume the responsibility of integrating this experience within the student’s curriculum.

Additional information about internships is available at IUP Internships.

Also be sure to speak with the English internship coordinator, Dr. Judith Villa.
