It is strongly recommended that students not register for Practicum until after completing their second semester in the program.

The Practicum provides students with an opportunity to apply, in an organizational setting, what they are learning and to develop professional contacts within their fields of interest. While students are responsible for locating practica, the faculty is available to provide support and information as needed. The Practicum Seminar provides a setting in which students can discuss specific issues and concerns, and a format for presenting their accomplished projects. All students that register for a Spring Practicum are required to attend the Practicum Seminars scheduled at the beginning of the semester and at the end. All students who will be registering for a summer internship are required to attend the summer seminar on April 7th or 8th, 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Students will also meet privately with the instructor one time during the semester. Please register for a section (A – D) and make a note when those seminars will meet. Note: Section D is restricted to Environmental Advocacy students. Practicum Seminar is credited as part of Practicum. NOTE:Section A will be combined with ES 696-A, Internship.
