Internship MA Literature Today

Doing an internship is a great opportunity to gain work experience with organisations in the field of literature and culture. As a Literature Today student, in the second semester you have the choice to do a 15 EC internship (or take courses from Masterlanguage).

On this page you will find information to find, arrange and complete your internship, as well as the necessary forms (see drop-down menus below). For more Literature Today specific information about doing an internship, please consult your Programme Coordinator.

Arranging an internship

In most cases, students organise their own internship, with support from the teaching staff, who have a broad network in government departments, companies and NGOs, and public institutions. Given the time needed to organise an internship, it is essential to think and decide about this early in the programme.

Internship Dashboard: previously done internships

The Internship Dashboard contains previously done internships of the Master's programmes of the Department of Languages, Literature and Communication (LLC), and as such of the Master's Literature Today. You can log in with your Solis-ID and get inspired for your own internship search. At the end of your own internship, you add your internship to the Internship Dashboard to inspire future Literature Today students. With questions you can turn to the LLC coordinator careers orientation.

Internship products and assessment

You will complete the internship with an internship report and a research report. These reports will be graded by your supervising lecturer.
