The English Department offers a wide range of internships for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have completed the UK CORE Composition and Communication requirement. Internships are excellent opportunities to learn about a career field and to gain professional experience. English Majors have interned for a variety of companies and organizations. Students often work for law firms, presses, libraries, the artistic and creative sector, non-profits, and more.
