The Internship gives students the opportunity to apply course work to the professional writing field in a supervised environment. Placements are in organizations where professional writing is required, or where skills from the course of study are practiced, such as writing for digital media or developing presentations or grant writing. The student and the work are evaluated by the hosting organization and the supervising faculty. During the six-week placement, students report each week to the faculty member in the form of a narrative description, with analysis of tasks performed and knowledge gained, showing the continuity and contextualization of those accomplishments. At the end of the internship, the student writes a formal report tying the experience into the relevant literature. This report may include supporting documents or other products created during the Internship which may be added to the student¿s e-portfolio.
