MFA Creative & Professional Writing

Internship

One of the goals of the program is to give you practical, hands-on experience working in one of your fields of interest. Students who are interested in teaching may choose to complete a teaching practicum by teaching at any level and completing a parallel project such as an essay or journaling.

Students who are not interested in teaching may participate in an internship that complements their course of study. The MFA Coordinator can assist the student in setting up an internship with organizations, businesses, or institutions across the country. The student might, for example, intern at a commercial magazine, for a newspaper or book publisher, as a grant writer, in a technical writing shop, or any other appropriate venue.
