A practicum is an internship-like experience that combines field experience and academic activities.  The practicum is a core requirement for the MMC program and students typically take part in this experience after other course work has been completed.  A student must work a total of 300 hours (or 20 hours a week for 15 weeks) at a professional organization.

The sponsoring organization must agree to adhere to the guidelines and requirements. You will need to submit a brief proposal including a description of your practicum along with location, supervisor, and phone numbers prior to being cleared to register for this course. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
