Opportunities for students


The professional writing certificate program requires a 15-week internship. Interns will likely be hosted by local non-profits or businesses in the Vancouver/Portland area. Interns will complete the required number of on-site work hours (50 clock hours for each semester hour earned). The most common 3-credit internship requires a commitment of 10 hours/week and results in 150 total hours spent on writing projects that provide a service to the intern’s host organization. The internship provides certificate seekers an opportunity to apply their knowledge acquired in the classroom to pressing community needs.

Past interns have been hosted by:

  • Future of Code
  • Geek Embassy
  • Student Diversity Center
  • Writing Center
