Alumni Published in Midwestern Gothic and Teaching Internships
“And gladly would he learn and gladly teach.” Said Chaucer of his clerk in the The Canterbury Tales. MAWP and MAE students interested in lending their knowledge and expertise to two-year colleges should heed that line. Students interested in pursuing a teaching career in academia should consider this as an opportunity to get some real world experience. Interns work alongside an experienced two-year college professor who guides them through a 16 week semester. The internship is for the Winter Quarter.
Interns must register with Professor Green for ENG 509 in order to pursue the internship. More information on the process is available on the department’s website. All interested graduates should contact Dr. Goffman by email before sending in application materials.
