Poetry and Pragmatism: An English Major Internship.
Ference, Mary Lou
An internship program developed in the English department at the University of Maryland provides English majors with the opportunity to sharpen their abilities and to gain preprofessional experience, while employers gain the chance to discover the talents and skills of English majors. Students in the program earn four credits for the semester course--three for the work experience and one for an evaluation paper at the end of the semester--and work approximately eight hours a week, usually without pay from the employer. Students have been trained in bibliography and publications at the Library of Congress; advertising, layout, and design for organizational publications departments; article writing for conservation newsletters and journals; newspaper editing, feature writing, and reporting; and legal research and writing for a legal aid bureau.
