The internship course for undergraduate majors in Technical Communication is English 4378. Internships require that you create a portfolio.
The TC Program allows you to two options for internships:
- Set up your own internship with a firm, agency, or nonprofit of your own selection
- Apply for established internships for which there is an application process.
Setting up Your Own Internship
You may choose to find an internship in a city of your choice with a firm that you might want to work for.
Finding an internship
Many companies offer internships that are not part of the TTU-TCR internship program. You can find out about these internships by
- Contacting companies on your own (look on their web sites for recruitment or personnel sections)
- Searching online job services, such as monster.com
- Working with the TTU Career Center
The internship must involve workplace writing or similar skills you learned in the BATC.
A TTU-TCR faculty member must agrees to serve as your mentor. You are responsible for finding a faculty member to mentor you.
Applying for Established Internships
The TCR program sometimes partners with companies to offer internships. These internships require an application and review process. For postings, see http://www.english.ttu.edu/tcr/BATC/Jobs_and_Internships.asp
