Did you know you can earn credit towards your English BA or MA by doing an internship?
Because the study of English can lead to many different career paths, it is important that every student identify a field of interest and create a plan to gain the right skills, experiences, and credentials to enter that field. FGCU English BA and MA students may arrange to receive credit through an Internship in a field related to the English degree. The student is expected to engage in work that is supervised by an Internship Supervisor who must have demonstrable expertise in the internship area.

Cultivating my communication skills, creative thinking, and adept writing within the program at FGCU secured two immediate jobs at the university level and greatly benefits my interactions while building a career in the professional sphere.
