Internships and Careers

General Information and Advice

If you are an English major with a 3.0 or better GPA and plan to pursue an unpaid internship where you will utilize the skills that you are developing as a major (such as a publishing, editing, or journalism internship), you may consider applying to earn unit credit in the Department for your work via the English 195I Internship Credit course. The staff undergraduate advisor has more information on this possibility. Note that applications for department internship credit must be submitted in advance of the internship beginning, and require the participation of a faculty member willing to supervise as the internship progresses.
