LANG 460: Internship

Term: Spring Fall

Credits: 1-4

Degree Requirements: F11

Internships in the departmental languages are occasionally available for language majors and permit a qualified student to receive
academic credit for an internship experience on or off campus, for example by working with a business, a non-profit organization, or
within the department itself. The internship, which requires of the student an advanced competence in a foreign language, must entail a
significant encounter with a foreign language. Working with a faculty mentor, students must submit a project proposal for the internship
prior to the beginning of the internship itself. The completed project will be graded by the faculty mentor. Intradepartmental internships
will be reserved for students planning to continue their studies in a foreign language and culture beyond the undergraduate level. Such
internal internships will involve working with a faculty mentor on projects of a diverse nature that seek to enhance the program offerings
of the language section. Placements must be approved by the faculty mentor who teaches the language in question and the chair of the
department. Internship credit will not be awarded retroactively and does not count toward the total number of credits required for the
major.
Pass/Fail only.

Prerequisites: none.
