RHE 366 • Internship in Rhetoric and Writing
This course is NOT a substantial writing component
This course provides an academic foundation and practical support for upper-division students working in DRW-approved internships. It is designed to help students 1) recognize how rhetoric is applied in the workplace environments, and 2) apply their training and skills in rhetoric and writing professionally. To meet these objectives, students will participate in a variety of activities: assigned readings, class discussions (in class and online), journal reflections on their workplace experience, university-sponsored workshops about job searching and workplace protocol, and in-class workshops and peer critique sessions designed to further develop their writing skills. Students will produce 20 pages of writing (which may include Discussion Board assignments and journal entries at an instructor's discretion) by the end of the semester. Because the amount of on-the-job writing students do will vary per internship, students will consult with the instructor at the beginning of the semester to determine the types of writing they will produce. This course is offered on a pass/fail basis. It does not count toward the rhetoric major. It may be repeated once for credit when the internships vary.
