Participating in an internship is a great way to turn classroom learning into practical experience. While engaged in the supportive environment of an internship you can test career goals, enhance professional skills, develop self-reliance, self-esteem, and responsibility. Furthermore, internships encourage networking with professionals and will provide increased marketability for employment after graduation.

Writing & Rhetoric majors, if they meet the criteria outlined below, can enroll in ITR 302/304 and upon successful completion, receive credit for WRT 484 (with a curriculum modification signed by the department chair).
