They will also be tasked with conducting interviews with UMM students, faculty, and staff, and taking photos at various UMM events.
A weekly output goal will be determined by the Director of Marketing and Public Relations and the intern before the internship begins.
The Marketing and Public Relations Office will offer one internship during each of the fall and spring semesters.
Process of Selection
Interested students who exhibit a high quality of writing are referred by the English, Creative Writing, and Book Arts faculty.
