To find a practicum, students should begin looking for postings of internships, jobs or other professional opportunities as possible practicums at least the semester before enrolling in JOUR 777. There are many sources on campus that can aid students in this search. Students are encouraged to meet with their Career Services Manager to assist with this process.
Once a list has been made of possible companies/organizations for which to work, students should contact each company to find out more about the available positions and suitability for a practicum experience.
After securing a practicum, please submit the Practicum Proposal Jotform. This should be done at least one week in advance of starting the semester in which the practicum will be completed, to give the coordinator ample time to review the proposal.
After the instructor(s) has/have approved the proposal, students will need to then be registered for JOUR 777 for the appropriate term in which they will complete the practicum.
