ENG 320, the internship course, is an individualized course. Each student takes the lead on identifying an internship experience he or she wants. Then after applying for and getting accepted to this internship, the student works with the on-site internship supervisor and the ENG Dept. internship coordinator (currently, Dr. Christopher Heuer) to set up and get approved a syllabus for that student’s individualized section of ENG 320. Then, and only then, a section of ENG 320 will be opened up for that student to register in. This is led by the student, so plan ahead.

Course Offerings Projected for 2016-2017:
Below is a tentative plan for the exact courses the English Dept. plans to offer in the next year and a half. Note that this may change pending faculty availability and student enrollment.

Always work with your faculty advisor and with Dr. Harmon, the major/minor coordinator, each semester to ensure you have a plan in place for graduation. Email Dr. Harmon with questions: Kristen.Harmon@gallaudet.edu.
