How does practicum education work for the online option?
In your first year of study, the Office of Practicum Learning will place you with an agency or other site in the metropolitan area closest to where you live. You will be asked to fill out a field placement form, which, along with the work experiences indicated on your resume, will help the staff members in our Office of Practicum Learning determine your first-year placement site. In addition, they will assist with your transition to practicum through a Preparation for the Profession Seminar.
NOTE: Your second-year placement is determined by your choice of method area (Advanced Clinical Practice, Policy Practice, or Social Enterprise Administration) as well as field of practice (Health, Mental Health, and Disabilities or Family, Youth, and Children’s Services), and you will have more input into the decision-making process.
