Student Practicum/Co-op Opportunities

CMU offers two types of practicum courses. Courses of the first type are scheduled alongside other courses during the academic year. These courses require students to gain experience in individual placements (a minimum of 60 hours per three credit hours) and to meet regularly in a practicum class at CMU. The second type, namely, the intensive practicum courses, requires students to spend a block of concentrated time in a placement over a minimum of 12 weeks (for a six credit-hour course). Most intensive practicum courses are developed with specific CMU programs in mind, but they are not restricted to students taking those programs.

Financial assistance is available for some intensive practica. Appropriate practicum placements are arranged with the Practicum Office in accordance with the student’s individual interests and academic goals.

Visit the practicum page for additional information.
