Internship Course ENGL 4960

The Internship in Writing and Editing

Enrolling in ENGL 4960, students work internships in writing, publishing, public relations, journalism and other fields, earning from 3 to 12 credit hours. Students may take the course more than once, working two or more internships, for up to 12 credit hours.

There are no classes for this course. However, you are expected to submit a portfolio of your work at the end of the internship. Students from any campus may register for ENGL 4960 during the “cross-campus registration period.”
