Ordinarily students will take no more than six credit hours of writing options outside of their area of emphasis. ENG 394, 493, and 495 are repeatable courses, as long as the same experience is not repeated. A single internship or independent study cannot count as fulfilling both a program and an option requirement.

In their junior year, majors should discuss with their advisers their preferences in pursuing ENG 493 or 495. If they have special interests and contacts for a summer internship, they should also discuss such possibilities well ahead of time.
