This course provides students with practical experience through a 150-hour field experience (externship). Students and the Practicum Coordinator will agree to a learning contract that establishes goals. Students are expected to keep a reflective notebook of their experience and will meet collectively on campus during the semester to share their experiences and to present brief reports. The Practicum Coordinator will visit each supervising establishment no less than twice per semester. Transportation to internship sites is the responsibility of the student. (Sp)
