Built-in professional experience

The School of Public Health Sciences is home to three professional graduate programs, all of which have a built-in 420-hour professional practicum allowing students to gain relevant hands-on experience in their field.

Students will work closely with the Practicum Coordinator to find a practicum that will provide them with the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills and to connect with future employers. Once the practicum has been secured, students will work with the practicum supervisor to complete a learning contract.

The practicum is a mandatory component of all professional graduate programs and can be taken after all core coursework is complete.
