Department of Modern Languages: Courses and Internships


In order for the Department of Modern Languages to determine whether a proposed internship is suitable for credit as FREN/GERM/SPAN 389, the student must fill out the On-line Internship Pre-Application Form and send it by the appropriate deadline. The form provides guidelines for identifying an internship and lists deadlines for its submission.

Students who are looking for additional French, German or Spanish courses may choose to complete the internship (FREN/GERM/SPAN 389) as one of their electives within the major.

To qualify for the internship students must have successfully completed one three hundred level course. Students approved for an internship will receive three hours of credit and will be required to work 150 hours (10 hours per week) over the course of the semester. Students will work with a faculty advisor for whom they will keep a weekly log in French, German or Spanish and with whom they will meet periodically throughout the semester. Grades will be based on a final evaluation by the work supervisor, the weekly log and the interview.

A committee that will include members of the ML faculty will select the interns each semester.
