The English Department makes full use of the manifold resources in the Twin Cities area. English majors gain valuable professional experience through internships at local organizations in a range of fields, including publishing, politics, education, and journalism. Many students apply for internships either during the summer or during the academic year. Internships can be done for pay or academic credit.
The Macalester Career Exploration Center has many resources to get you started in your internship search:
- Finding a job or internship
- Internship databases to search for opportunities
- Past internships by English majors and minors
A database of internship and job opportunities can be accessed by current Macalester students and alumni using Handshake.
