Practicum Courses

Some courses have a real-world practice component, connecting students to outside organizations and agencies. In some cases (Baltimore Community Practicum and PHASE Internship, for example), the course is centered on a fully developed practice experience that fulfills the practicum requirement for all students who complete the course. In other cases, the course instructor may be able to connect only some of the students in the course with practicum experience, and/or may provide more limited experience that meets only a part of the total required practicum hours. Students are expected to complete the didactic course as they engage in the practicum. Course descriptions and related information for each can be found on the Practicum Opportunity Site listings or on the online course catalog. Below are links to the brief description of the practicum component of the course as well as a listing of the practicum courses.
