Opportunities for students


The professional writing certificate program culminates with a 15-week internship. Most interns are hosted by local nonprofits or businesses in Vancouver. The internship requires a commitment of 10 hours/week; all told, 150 hours are spent on writing projects that provide a service to the intern’s host organization. The internship provides certificate seekers an opportunity to apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to pressing community needs.

Past interns have been hosted by:

  • Clark Public Utilities
  • Salmon Creek Journal
  • The Columbian newspaper
