We recommend that RWFM 484 Internship be certified as a writing (W) course. We have reviewed a representative syllabus and have determined that the course meets or exceeds the following criteria: (1) 59.17% of the final grade is based on writing quality; (2) the total number of words is 2500; (3) the instructor to student ratio is 1:11; and (4) the assigned writing is appropriate to the major.
RWFM 484 is a 4-credit course, and one Graduate Assistant is assigned to it. Students write an internship report and a career readiness competency reflection. They turn in a draft of the report for written instructor comment to get formative feedback. Instruction includes examples, information about resources, and detailed assignment instructions.
