Tuesday, 11/18, from 4:00 to 5:00pm, in 1210 McClung Tower, Dr. Russ Hirst, who coordinates professional internships in the department of English, will lead an internship interest meeting. The department runs internships under course title 493 (Independent Study) for 3 credit hours. These courses can be petitioned for writing concentration requirements and English Dept. electives. At this meeting, we’ll talk about the sorts of things you might do in a professional communication internship, the value of such internships, the requirements for getting academic credit for an internship, locations where your classmates have served internships, and strategies for finding good internship sites.Internships significantly strengthen your marketability and your preparedness for graduate school. It pays to begin thinking early about how and when you might serve an internship.
