Work-Study projects (EN 399) usually involve internships with, for example, publishing
houses, newspapers, or television stations. No more than three semester hours in field
experience may count toward the 300 level requirements in the major, and majors must
adhere to the following stipulations: 1) the student and his or her academic supervisor
will put together a list of books and/or articles for the student to read during the
course of his or her internship; 2) where appropriate, the student will submit to
his or her academic supervisor the products of the internship at the end of the semester;
3) the student will write a long essay or research paper at the end of the term; a
journal is not a substitute for either; 4) the student's external supervisor will
evaluate the student's performance and send a written evaluation to the academic supervisor.
An application form for an internship may be obtained through the office of the Dean
of Studies. While students may not use a Professional Internship alone to qualify
for honors, it may be a part of a larger Honors Plan.
