English students may qualify for a variety of internships, receiving significant on-the-job experience in such areas as creative writing, business writing, editing, publishing, communications, non-profit work, and education. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may receive as many as 4 hours of elective credit toward their major, which includes Junior Year Experiential Learning (JYEL) credit. Students might locate an internship on their own or choose from the internships found quarterly by Prof. Chris Green, Coordinator of Professional Internships in Writing and Publishing. To earn credit, students will need Professor Green's approval to register for ENG 392/509, an online class designed to complement their internship work. Students will also benefit from quarterly Career Nights featuring panels of professionals.
