English 4890 & 4891: Practicum: Careers in Writing

These internships provide students with numerous benefits:

  • Opportunities to work with professionals on communication projects.
  • Occasions for observing, analyzing, and commenting on work experiences.
  • Strategies for understanding the roles and responsibilities of communicators in a professional community.

A student can earn 6 semester hours (s.h.) by completing both Engl 4890 and Engl 4891, but most undergraduates complete only 3 s.h. so they can experience many different writing courses. Engl 4890 and Engl 4891 are available as web-based campus courses. Each course is 3 s.h., 140 hours of on-the-job work, and academic requirements. Courses may not be repeated.

If you are interested in doing an internship, contact Brent Henze, Internship Coordinator
