English Internship Program

The Department of English offers students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in editing and technical writing, journalism writing, desktop publishing, mass media writing/production, and/or creative writing through their participation in the English Internship Program. In addition to providing them with the opportunity to network, an internship provides students the opportunity to translate their academic skills and interests into a real-world, professional setting as they prepare for graduation and their careers. ENG 4933 is a 3 credits course designed for English majors. It fulfills specific degree requirement for students pursuing the B.A. in English with an Emphasis in Professional Writing.

Other students pursuing the B.A. in English or the B.A. in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing may apply the internship course towards their degree requirements as an Upper Division English Elective (N.B. students are encouraged to meet with their major Academic Advisor first to assess how the ENG 4933 fits into their specific degree plan and progress).  ENG 4933 may be repeated once for credit, however, only three hours of internship credit may be applied towards students’ major requirements.
