Field Experience


In our graduate counseling specialization programs, students are placed in regional public schools or other local agencies for their practicums and internships. Placements are secured by the internship coordinator who works with local districts, schools and agencies to identify potential placement opportunities. The coordinator works with students to introduce and finalize their placements.
