Students who wish to enroll in COM 4760 – Advanced Internship in Technical Communication must satisfy the following requirements:
- Be a declared major or minor in the TC&MP department (certain IDP students will be considered)
- Be approved to undertake an internship by two professors in the department
- Complete 12 COM-designated hours or more with at least one upper division course
Students who obtain an internship through Cooperative Education will also need to enroll in COM 4760.
Students may enroll for 1-12 credits of internship credit. The following formula is used to determine how much time the student must devote to the internship experience:
1 credit hour = 50 hours intern work
Once the internship is approved by a department professor, the department chairman or Cooperative Education representative, and the site internship supervisor, students must read, complete and sign all the internship agreements. This includes the workmen’s compensation form.
If you have any questions about the internship, contact the chairman of the Department of Technical Communication and Media Production.
