The Practicum/lnternship sequence provides an opportunity for students enrolled in the counselor preparation program to translate theory into effective clinical practice. Students will apply the skills, knowledge and understanding they have acquired during their course of study, under direct supervision with bona fide clients. Practicum students counsel with clients under close, direct supervision. Students are expected to enroll in Internship during the semesters immediately following their Practicum enrollment. Under no circumstances may the Practicum and Internships be taken concurrently. Practicum and Internship are offered in the fall, spring and during the entire summer, not just the seven-week summer semesters. During the summer, student will work in their Practicum and Internship sites for 14 weeks. They will work before and after the regularly scheduled summer courses start and end.
