Apply Now: Various Internships at Sächsische Staatskanzlei in Dresden

Being back on campus, I hope you are all enjoying the summer term so far! Between assignments, group works, reading journals and mensa pauses, I also want you to think about the time after your studies at ASL and the opportunities internships can offer during your studies. I know that this can be quite overwhelming and frightening because the field of opportunities seems so wide. But this is also a chance! The internships I have for you today also reflect this broadness quite well and are just a suggestion what you can do with an BA or MA in American Studies.


Apply Now: Internship at KONSUMGUT:OST Festival

A little birdy (aka Instagram) told me that there is a new festival emerging in Saxony. There is not much I could find online about KONSUMGUT:OST, besides that it will be a pop culture festival for artists from Saxony and that it will take place in Dresden & Chemnitz on July 16, 2022. However, I am thrilled and think that is a great proof that Saxony has a lot to offer.


Apply Now: Internship at Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut Tübingen

Since the semester break is coming to an end, I hope you had a good time writing papers or on vacation!

Of course those are questions only you can answer for yourself. However, I have a great internship possibility for you today!
