Taking additional courses or working while participating in your internship is highly discouraged.

  • University Writing Program (UWP) 198. Directed Group Study (2 units, Pass/No Pass grading only)
  • This 2-unit online course is intended as a forum to connect the work students do at their internship to its broader social and cultural context. Through online discussions and assignments, students will have a community with whom to share their reflections and observations about their internship placements and to explore the significance of interning in an international context. Students are often asked to write reflective pieces. Assignments and topics vary by program. May be repeated up to 10 unit(s). GE credit: AH, WE.

Note for students requesting 192 internship credit from their major department: Prior to enrolling in the program, we recommend confirming with your major department that you are able to receive internship credit for EAP 192 (some departments have a minimum unit requirement for upper division internship credit).
