PSYC 8871 - Practicum


(6 cr. minimum—3 cr. per term for minimum 2 terms) The practicum is the opportunity for students to engage in a supervised experience that integrates theory and research with practice. Through the practicum, students work toward developing intermediate conceptual, assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills; awareness of professional and ethical issues; professional and interpersonal growth; development of cultural competence; and the ability to effectively use supervision and feedback. Students must secure a practicum appropriate to their specialization, and the practicum must meet the current requirements of the state psychology board to which students intend to apply. Students design the PhD in Psychology practicum for a period of no fewer than 750 hours, which they must complete over a minimum of 2 terms. Students also participate in an online classroom experience. (Prerequisite(s): Completion of the practicum application and approval of the field placement coordinator and completion of the Academic Year in Residence.) Note: Post-doctoral certificate students may complete the practicum in one term, but may register for an additional term if they need more time.
