Independent Work or Internships

AMST 499 is a course alpha for student-designed directed readings or internship experiences.

In consultation with the Undergraduate Chair and an advisor students may craft an independent reading course in a subject area not currently covered by existing American Studies coursework as a 499 course.

More often, students who are interested in designing a “bridge” experience from university to the real world will use a 499 to create a course around an internship.

This course can count as one of the courses toward the 9 credits requirement of upper division American Studies electives.
