PROGRAM: Counseling, Tutoring and Testing (CCLT) offers several practicum opportunities
for graduate students in both the counseling and the psychology fields. Practicum
opportunities are available in all CCLT departments: Career Counseling, Educational
Support, Psychological Counseling, and Psychological Counseling with Testing.
PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS: The philosophy of the Practicum Program is that counseling and
psychology graduate students should be trained as generalists to function in a wide
variety of settings with a diverse population and with student clients who present
with an assortment of needs and concerns. The primary goal of the Practicum Program
is to provide a unique training opportunity in academic, career, or psychological
counseling, or educational support. The training builds on the practicum student's
existing skills and prepares him/her for the next step in his/her chosen career.
DESCRIPTION: Each of the practicum opportunities offers supervised practicum-level
generalist training in one unit for one semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer). Practicums
typically require 150 hours on site. Practicum students are trained to perform duties
in the unit in which they are completing their practicum and also to gain a knowledge
of, and experience in, the operations of a comprehensive university counseling center.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: Practicum applications are available in 214 Wilder Tower,
or on request from the Practicum Coordinator. Qualified applicants are screened and
interviewed by unit directors. Deadlines for applications are June 1 for the Fall,
September 1 for the Spring and January 1 for the Summer Semesters.
