The Practicum

First Steps in Planning your Practicum

Decisions about your practicum should be made to fit your academic and professional goals and interests. Consult your academic advisor, any faculty whose interests intersect with your own, as well as the Practice office to begin exploring possible practicum opportunities. Departmental Faculty Practice Representatives (DFPR) and Practice office staff can work with you on your search for a practicum that suits your interests and career objectives.
