Addendum: Course Descriptions
ENG 222 Fiction (3 credit hours)
An introduction to the main fictional genres-short story, novella, and novel-through the reading and critical analysis of works that represent a range of periods, techniques, regions, and themes.
LING 200 Pre-Internship (non-credit)
This course provides an opportunity to engage in a cross-cultural experience in an introductory English language teaching environment. The pre-internship typically focuses on teaching conversational English to young and adolescent ESL learners in a summer language camp or school setting. The teaching mostly happens in a formal or semi-formal teaching context but these are supplemented by opportunities for less structured, out-of-classroom activities. Total teaching time will be between 20 and 65 hours, typically completed over a period of 3 to 5 weeks. A pre-internship may be repeated, for non-credit, when the cross-cultural experience is to a different country.
Prerequisite: Permission of the TESOL program coordinator
