EDUC696 - Practicum


This 16-week course will offer the candidate an opportunity to observe and experience 100 hours of counseling activities in the school setting under direct supervision of an experienced school counselor. Candidates are required to complete specialized assignments that enhance their understanding of the role of the counselor in the school environment. Candidates observe and engage in activities with experienced school counselors which may include classroom guidance, group counseling, and individual counseling in addition to other school counseling related activities. Candidates are required to participate in synchronous group supervision sessions and complete weekly journals that document their on-site experiences and theoretical knowledge. Discussions include ethics, working with diverse populations, and practical issues in delivering a comprehensive school counseling program. All coursework must be completed prior to registration. Pre-Service candidates are required to contact the Coordinator of Field Experience when they have finished 50% of their program coursework prior to the Practicum course in order to discuss the Readiness Audit process. Upon receipt of candidate notification of 50% program completion, the School of Education will provide the candidate with a formal application for the Practicum (EDUC696) and Internship (EDUC699) courses. Careful attention needs to be paid to submission deadlines which require that all Readiness Audit documentation be submitted no later than 30 days prior to the Practicum start. NOTE: If you intend to complete your Practicum and Internship consecutively, without break, it is strongly recommended to begin the Practicum experience during August, September, or October to facilitate a smooth transition into the school setting during the regular academic school year. Practicum courses are not offered in the following months: April, May, June, and July. NO LATE REGISTRATIONS ALLOWED.
