ENGL 475 - English Internship

1 - 6 Credit(s) | Lecture |
Course can be counted for credit up to 6 times/6 credits

A tutorial course for students with approved internships involving substantial writing in professional settings. Students meet every other week with a faculty internship director to discuss writing they have produced at the internship. The writing is accompanied by a breakdown of the steps involved in researching and composing it, the time spent, the extent of the intern’s contribution, and an analysis of what was learned in the process. Course requirements typically include a journal, readings, and end-of-term portfolio, and a summary essay, and may include an oral presentation to a class or student group. For application forms and full information about requirements, see the director of internships. Because potential faculty internship directors make commitments early, students are encouraged to apply during advanced registration. The course awards three hours of credit for a minimum of 25 pages of formal on-the-job writing and ten hours of work per week on site. Six credit hours may be given for proportionally greater writing and on-site hours. The course satisfies the English major capstone requirement.

Enrollment Requirements:
