The English department believes that English is one of the most versatile concentrations you can choose as an undergraduate at Michigan. We understand, too, that a number of our concentrators receive opportunities to work in various internship placements, especially over the summer months, putting their skills as writers and speakers to work in placements outside the classroom. Most businesses and organizations that allow internships require that the students receive some academic credit for their work (the students are not hired as regular employees of the company), and the English department is pleased to offer students one upper-level credit that can be counted toward an English concentration. The stipulations and requirements are as follows:

  • You must be a declared English concentrator to receive internship credit from our department.
  • You can only count one internship credit towards your English concentration.
  • This credit counts as elective credit; it cannot be used to fulfill the Department's distribution requirements.
  • You must apply for the internship at least three weeks before beginning your internship.
  • To receive credit for the internship, you will register for English 321 in the term following your internship (this is typically done in the fall following spring or summer internship work).
  • You are also required to submit a brief (c.5 pages) essay describing the kind of work you performed in your internship and talking a little bit about what that work meant to you. You should also include contact information for your internship. If you do not write up a description of your internship work for the department, you cannot receive credit for your work.
  • We ask that, when you have completed your internship, the organization for which you interned also submit a brief letter to the Department describing your work.
  • We are compiling a library of successful internship placements. If it is appropriate, we will be contacting the organization for which you did your internship and asking them if they would be willing to accept other interns from our department on a case-by-case basis.

You may pick up a registration form for internship credit at the main office of the English Department, 3187 Angell Hall. This form is also available on-line from our download forms section.

The English Department is delighted that you are thinking of ways to put your communication skills to work in situations outside the classroom. Best of luck to you.
