Experiential Learning Opportunities
- Dorothy Lloyd Gilbert Award
- Dean’s Writing Award Contests
- O’Callaghan Award (Presented each April at the Campus Awards Convocation to a rising senior who is an outstanding English major.)
Internships are a great way to get academic credit while exploring vocational paths or discerning if a “dream job” is the right one for you. There are many opportunities on campus, in Greensboro, and farther afield–and we strongly encourage all majors to undertake one before graduating.
- local publishing firm
- independent filmmakers in San Francisco and Los Angeles
- Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
- international media group (while attending Guilford’s study abroad London program)
- community arts organizations
- partnering with Guilford professors (conducting research or teaching, to prepare for graduate school)
English majors are encouraged to embark on individual and/or group research projects to gain in-depth understanding of a subject of interest. Each year students have the opportunity to present these projects at the Guilford Undergraduate Symposium (GUS).
