It requires the signature of the on-site supervisor of your work and those of your advisor, sponsor and chair. Generally, you will be asked to write about your experience for your academic sponsor.
Common internships for English majors in the Burlington area include radio and TV stations, publishers, magazines and newspapers, as well as some on-campus offices, such as the University Communications Office.
Internships can count towards total hours in the major, but cannot count as fulfilling the specific requirements of the major and must be sponsored by a faculty member in the English department. After obtaining all required signatures, you will need to enroll in either ENGS 191 or 192.
