Resources and Opportunities for English Students

Many opportunities, on and off campus, exist for English majors to gain experience. You can work on Hail Muse, Etc.! (campus literary magazine), the Sundial (student newspaper), or Helianthus (Randolph College yearbook).

The Senior Seminar, required of all English majors, allows students to develop critical perspectives in literature by increasing understanding of key concepts such as genre, period, school, and critical approach.

Recent placements include internships at

  •  Randolph College's Maier Museum of Art (curatorial intern),
  • Prototype Advertising (literary intern),
  • Lynchburg's Academy of Fine Arts (marketing intern),
  • Dublin, Ireland's Trinity College (international programs intern) and
  • the Obama Campaign for Change (political intern).
