ENGL 405 English Practicum

Pre-professional work experience in areas such as journalism, publishing, librarianship, law, and TESL. Student enrolled in the course should report directly to a professional supervisor, and the majority of their work should place an emphasis on skills related to their vocational goals. Practicum students who are completing the "writing track" should seek experiences that will emphasize writing, editing, researching, or designing publications, and they should pay particular attention to developing their writing portfolio during this experience. The practicum will be taken for pass/fail credit unless the student formally requests a letter grade before attempting the practicum. (Only a total of eight credit hours from a practicum may be applied toward the required hours for the English major).
