A number of special opportunities exist within the department. Students interested in careers in publishing or in creative writing often have the opportunity to work as an intern with Prairie Schooner. Our literature students frequently contribute their efforts to the Cather Project, the Walt Whitman Archive, the Corvey collection, and to the editing of The Great Plains Quarterly. Students in Composition and Rhetoric often take part in the Nebraska Writing Project, The School at the Center Project, and the Nebraska Literacy Project, while others gain administrative experience by helping to coordinate the composition program, and still others gain editorial experience through assisting with Studies in Writing and Rhetoric. There are also opportunities for students to work with Affiliated Interdisciplinary Programs
