Professional Writing Internships
One of the capstones to the Professional Writing Master’s emphasis is the internship. Master’s students will secure, with the help of the Coordinator of Professional Writing, an internship in a professional environment. This internship is the basis for practical experience in the workplace, but, more importantly, it is the basis for the Professional Writing Master’s Thesis. This internship lasts for one semester, but may be completed over the summer if needed. Students are urged to contact the Coordinator of Professional Writing early in their MA studies to plan ahead for the internship. Southeastern’s MA students have interned both on and off campus. We have placed students at such diverse locations as:
Office of Career Services
Nineteenth Century Literature
The City of Hammond
Students have completed a variety of projects including web design, page design, procedural manuals, proposals and other in-depth business documents.
