INTERNSHIPS: 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. Sharon Pajka) 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! There are many exciting opportunities out there, both on- and off-campus. Interested in teaching?
