Community Service Practicum

This course is one of the three senior capstone courses for psychology majors, which are designed to provide a final, intensive learning experience to assist graduating seniors with further exploration in several areas of psychology or a more in-depth immersion in a single area of interest. In this course, students are involved with their community in a way that applies their knowledge of psychology and allows them to learn related skills. This may be done through placement in a community agency or other work setting to gain “real-world” experience in the field of psychology while working under the supervision of a psychology professional. Alternatively, it may also be completed through community service or volunteer projects at one or more sites in which students may integrate their academic knowledge with practical experience. Practicum sites are chosen in consultation with the course instructor.
