Internship Program and Course
The English Internship Program (ENG 350 and ENG 522) provides students with an opportunity for professional workplace experience and development while receiving college credit. The undergraduate program is open to juniors and seniors in all College of Humanities and Social Sciences majors and minors. Undergraduate students who successfully complete ENG 350 are eligible to do a second internship for credit during the summer as an independent study.
Student editors for any student media including Agromeck, Nubian Message, WKNC 88.1 or Technician may use their position as an internship experience during their tenure. Editors enrolling in ENG 350 must attend class and complete all of the academic assignments to earn credit.
I was recommended for a position with Futures for Kids' affiliate, Career Cruising, as a freelance interviewer and editor. I never would have made this connection without your class.
