Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

 

APC Document 31: †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Add new course, LIT 340, Internship

 

 

Effective Date: Fall 2010

 

 

1. †††††††††† Add: †††† On page 188, new course LIT 340:

 

340†††††††† Internship (1-3)

Offers opportunities for supervised work in professional settings. Students gain experience in fields including editing, publishing and bookselling. May be repeated once for a maximum of 4 credit hours. Will not fulfill Literature & Language elective requirements. Prerequisites: minimum 3.0 GPA and a declared major in Literature & Language. See department chair.

 

 

Impact Statement:

There should be no impact on the resources and staffing of the Literature and Language Department. Supervising students in an internship program (currently as LIT 373) is already part of the regular departmental service load.

 

Rationale:

We need a regular course for which interns can register each semester without having a special section of LIT 373 added for each student. A course with variable hours streamlines both the registration process and our departmentís management of internships. These internship opportunities allow our students to experience the variety of career paths that await them as literature majors. The program further helps our department to maintain important ties with the Asheville literary community.
