Students do 40 hours of work for 1 hour of credit and typically take the internship for either 2 or 4 hours. Students may count up to 8 hours of internship credit toward the major, beyond the minimum requirements. Recent internships have been in the area of writing and publishing, though other options are available. Notices on internships are posted in the English Department. Students may also contact the Internship Office in Career Services.
An internship provides an opportunity for you to integrate academic learning with actual work experience in your major academics area of study. It is a supervised experience intended to enhance your educational goals. These guidelines apply to all internships except for student teaching and HNGR internships.
Undergraduate students must have reached junior status and have completed at least 16 hours in the major before requesting an internship. If you are on academic probation you normally would not be allowed to register for an internship.
Application forms are available in the department office.
