Students are responsible for arranging an internship in conjunction with the English Undergraduate Office and an on-site internship supervisor. Applications for venues not currently on record with the English Undergraduate Office must be reviewed and voted on by the Undergraduate Committee.

Academic credit is earned on the basis of 6-10 hours per week of on-site work during the regular 15-week term (11-20 hours during the 8-week summer session), a weekly work log, and a brief summary of experiences at the end of the semester. Download the Mid Term Progress Report form here.  In general, English Internships count as a 1 hour, general elective credit.

For an internship that includes academic work similar to work in an upper-level English class, as well as an academic final project guided by a faculty member in English, students may petition the Undergraduate Committee for permission to receive 3 hours of general elective credit. In order to allow time for the approval process, students should begin planning early in the term preceding that in which they want to earn academic credit for the internship. Credit for internships will count as general academic credit; it does not count as required coursework within the major.
