Additional coursework beyond the 7 course certificate may be needed depending on your bachelor’s degree to fully meet the academic requirements to sit for the CCLS. In addition, all candidates for the CCLS examination must complete the required practicum/internship. Students must place themselves in a practicum or internship. The university does not offer assistance with placement, but is willing to negotiate affiliation agreements with hospitals that are open to the process. Practicum/internship support courses are offered for affiliated students. Additional information on these requirements can be found at www.childlife.org.
An AMU admissions representative will contact you with further details about how to submit the required documentation after you complete the enrollment application.
