English Department Internship Policies

You may enroll in an internship for as few as 1 credit or as many as 9 credits. You are expected to
complete 3 hours of work per week for each credit you receive. In other words, 1 credit translates into
3 hours of work per week and 9 credits translates into 27 hours of work per week.
