An internship requires junior status or instructor approval, along with good academic standing. You can earn one to three credit hours depending on the number of hours of work (1 credit = 15 hours/2 credits = 30 hours/3 credits = 50 hours). Internships can be selected from among community partner organizations. You will need to negotiate a letter of agreement with site supervisor and submit to the Internship program director, attend an orientation, midterm, and final session, and submit regular updates on Blackboard as well as a final reflective update.

Travel seminars encourage you to discover new areas of knowledge while nurturing intellectual and personal maturation. Exposure to a culture and literature outside of the United States invites you to think critically about the past, present, and future of people whose experiences differ substantially from your own.
Faculty in the English Department have led travel seminars to England, South Africa, and India.
