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 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 will receive 1 credit for each internship experience. Students may count up to 4 credits of ENGLISH 321 toward their elective concentration credits.
  • This credit counts as elective credit; it cannot be used to satisfy 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).

At the end of your internship you will be required to submit the following materials to receive your internship credit:

  • An essay (c. 5 pages) describing the work your performed, how it relates to your English concentration, and things you learned from the internship
  • A letter of recommendation from your internship supervisor
  • A list of contacts from your internship
  • Copies/samples of the work you completed

You may pick up an application from the main English Department office, located in 3187 Angell Hall. This form is also available on-line from our download forms section, http://www.lsa.umich.edu/english/undergraduate/advising/pdf/internship.pdf
