To be eligible to register for the Interdisciplinary Practicum (ILD 811), students must have successfully completed a minimum of 12 credits in core courses (ILD 801-808). However, the student should begin to plan for their practicum four months before the start of the practicum.
The practicum experience provides students with opportunities to apply theory to practice. The expectation is that the student's goals/objectives are integrated into the practicum experience providing the student with "hands on" approach under the supervision of a knowledgeable professional. The practicum should not be directly related to the current position or responsibility of the student. However, a student in an organization may be able to take on a special task or responsibility elsewhere in the organization.
