Curricular Action Notice: Practicum courses

AAC has suggested wording for the catalog that will allow departments to offer practica to students using the 2020 course number.

2020 Practicum. 1-3 hours: A practicum is an out-of-class learning experience that allows students to observe or participate in applied work or research. A faculty member serves as liaison to the practicum placement and assists students in integrating their applied learning with academic goals. This course may be repeated for maximum of 6 credits.

Comment: Each department desiring a practicum may establish a course. The course may be offered collectively or via individualized instruction depending on the needs of a program. Practica usually occur prior to and are less intensive experiences than internships, which are typically designed as a form of capstone experience.
