What Students Write


The internship is a meaningful capstone experience through which students practice their professional writing skills in a relevant workplace setting. We're proud of the responsibility and trust our workplace partners bestow upon our students, and we're proud of the quality writing work our students contribute to their internship host organizations. The following is a partial list of the kinds of writing-related work students have done at their internships.
