English 8903: Teaching College English

English 8903 is a teaching internship with a faculty member, which students must complete before they can be assigned to teach any of the 2000-level literature, language, or folklore courses. English 7881.02 (Teaching Basic Writing), 7881.03 (Teaching of College Composition in English as a Second Language), and 7881.04 (Teaching Business and Professional Communication) may be substituted for 8903 by students whose teaching interests include basic writing, ESL, and/or business and professional writing. However, 8903 will be a prerequisite for teaching the relevant 2000-level courses (just as the 7881 series is now a prerequisite for teaching the specialized writing courses).
