The Teaching Press at UW-Green Bay (multiple internships, small stipend)

By admin No comments

Applications Due September 8, 2021

3 credits each, small stipend available  
The Teaching Press is a project-directed, student-managed, interdisciplinary printing house that promotes community outreach through applied learning. Interns experience a real-world publishing environment in which to design, create, research, collaborate, implement, and execute a variety of client-led publications.

Each internship is worth 3 course credits. If you are a Writing and Applied Arts BFA, these internships DO count towards the 6 credits of internships required for the degree. 

In general, interns work on the Green Bay campus. However, if you require a remote/virtual accommodation for this internship, you will be able to indicate that.    

Each internship requires an average of 8-12 hours of work per week during the 14-week semester.
 While junior, senior, or super-senior applicants are preferred, any level of student may apply to these positions. At the end of this application, you will be asked to upload your current resume.  

All applications will be kept on file through the following semester. Application DEADLINE: September 2, 2021.

While junior, senior, or super-senior applicants are preferred, any level of student may apply to these positions.
