Field-Based Experiences

Preparing Students for Professional Success

Field-based experiences such as academic internships and practicums provide BU Wheelock students with hands-on, real-world learning related to their program of study. These opportunities enable our students to apply what they are learning in academic coursework to real-life settings.

The Professional Preparation Office at BU Wheelock collaborates closely with faculty and staff to support students, practitioners, and supervisors throughout the process of identifying, placing, and completing field-based experiences. We facilitate and support students’ learning experiences in academic fieldwork to advance their professional goals. We maintain relationships with sites, practitioners, and supervisors to ensure that our field-based programs are high quality and also relevant to the needs of our students and the field.
