Student Practicum

CMU offers two types of practicum courses. Courses of the first type are scheduled alongside other courses during the academic year. These allow students to gain valuable work experience and to test vocational goals in placements suitable for the individual student. These individual placements require a minimum of 60 hours per three credit hours, and for the students to meet regularly in a practicum seminar at CMU. The second type, namely, the Intensive Practicum courses, allows students to spend a block of concentrated time in a work placement (requiring a minimum of 12 weeks for a six credit hour course). Many Intensive Practicum courses have been developed with specific CMU programs in mind, but the primary focus in finding a specific placement has to do with the individual student's academic and vocational goals. Most Intensive Practicum courses are developed with specific CMU programs in mind, but they are not restricted to students taking those programs.

Practicum placements are arranged in collaboration between the student, the Practicum Office, and a potential practicum host.
