“So what are you going to do with that English major?”
Helping schools, companies, and communities tell their stories is just one way you'll put your English major to work.
Internships for English Majors was founded in 2021 to enhance the employability of UCI English majors. The program runs each fall and offers paid internships in marketing and communications to both campus and off-campus positions. Positions are limited and priority will be given to juniors and seniors with a grade point average of 3.5 or above. Students should be available to work 5-10 hours per week, and they must enroll in Writing 197.
