Some aspects of monopoles in string theory are considered. Three cases are described where monopole solutions can be constructed in a systematic approximation scheme. The lowest order solutions are exhibited for these examples, as well as certain higher order corrections. Issues involved in a proper string theoretic treatment of these solutions, such as collective coordinates and vertex operators are discussed.
