    Undergraduate Research

    English majors and minors conduct and share their original research in a variety of venues. Some receive competitive  Undergraduate Research Grants  to fund their activities, while others enroll in ENG 403 Individual Projects and work closely with a faculty advisor to produce research projects for course credit; still others revise work from their classes into public presentations. English students regularly present their research at the department's  Senior Capstone Presentations , the  UW-L Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity , and the  National Conference on Undergraduate Research.

    International Study

    We have several study abroad programs during the academic year and over the summer, including programs in France, England, and Ireland. For more information, including the application process, please visit the Office of International Education.

    Internships

    An internship can provide valuable experience in a company or other organization related to your future career. Contact Karolyn Bald at UW-L's Career Services office to learn about Eagle Opportunities, the University's online resource for locating jobs and internships.

    English Club

    The student-run English Club sponsors faculty-student cookouts, poetry readings and open mic nights, book drives and other volunteer activities, and infamous game nights. They also edit and publish a creative online publication,  The Catalyst.  Visit the club's Blogfor the latest events.

    International Honors Society

    The English department sponsors a chapter of  Sigma Tau Delta, an International English Honor Society that anyone interested in English can join.  Chapter members enjoy fellowship with other English majors on campus and abroad, and have the opportunity to share their writing and knowledge through Society-sponsored conferences and academic publications.
