What Do Past Students Say About The Experience


“Interning has given me the opportunity to learn whether I would actually pursue a specific career path which I have been interested in–and it also has given me valuable experience that I can put on a résumé when I decide to pursue a career related to the English field.”

Lelia Eye, Journal of Caribbean Literatures, Fall 2009


“I feel like I learned more in my English internship than in any other class I have taken. Working with the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre was a unique and rewarding experience that I will never forget!”

Rebekah Miller, Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, Summer 2009


“It was really nice to feel like I was doing something helpful and worthwhile outside of the classroom, and it opened up many job opportunities as well as showing me exactly what I want to go to graduate school for.”

Kelsey Fox, Faulkner County Literacy Council, Summer 2009


“I have actually been lucky enough to nail one of those impossibly awesome jobs. And it was all thanks to the internship program at UCA’s English department.”

Geoffrey Wright, Wildwood Center for the Performing Arts, Summer 2009


“I appreciated the independent research aspect of the internship …. Rather than having a teacher tell me exactly what to do and what was expected of me, I was allowed the freedom to learn on my own.

” Elizabeth Eason, Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, Summer 2009
