English 493 and English 494 each offer 3 upper–division credits for completing a supervised internship experience.
The courses are designed to provide practical job experience related to your English major. They are intended to help you identify career skills, explore career goals, learn job search techniques, and explore a particular work environment.
For English Department internships, you must find your own job placement. Lists of possible placements are available at the Office of Internships and Experiential Education in Roosevelt Hall. The Office of Internships and Experiential Education offers part or full-time internships if you are looking for more than the 3 or 6 units available through English.
