UWGB INTERNSHIPS IN THE HUMANITIES
Not sure what you will do with your degree in Humanistic Studies, English, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy or another humanities field? Are you considering graduate school, but are not sure?
All humanities students should consider gaining some practical career experience through an internship before they graduate. This can be an important part of your education and career preparation. AND YOU CAN RECEIVE COLLEGE CREDIT FOR IT usually at no additional expense. And now, if you apply and qualify, you may also be able to receive pay for the experience!
Smart UWGB humanities students are getting important hands-on experience and developing skills before they begin their job search by working as interns in fields, such as publishing, museum studies, teaching, digital humanities, library science, translating, multicultural and international education, editing, and many other career areas.
Each semester I contact local employers, businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies on behalf of UWGB humanities students requesting internships for them. Any humanities student in good standing (including those in Humanistic Studies as well as those in the various individual academic programs in the humanities), who is interested in adding this kind of experience to their college education and credentials, may register. You can but do not have to be majoring or minoring in Humanistic Studies to apply for one of these internships.
Since there are often more applicants than positions at some of these places, it is a very good idea to contact me soon or see me at very least by the end of classes if possible in order to discuss your options and to get registered.
Take advantage of these great opportunities to improve your resumé and job prospects!
Make your humanities degree work for you!
