This course is an applied field work experience in community based Human Service programs and agencies. It is designed to provide students the opportunity to develop a practical understanding of the human service delivery system and its relevance to local, state and national social service policy. Students draw connections between theory and practice and actively participate and support efforts to assist individuals and programs that address populations in need. The practicum experience heightens student awareness of the skills required of an effective human service provider and affords them the opportunity to determine their appropriateness for the profession. Students will provide 8-10 hours per week of service and attend assigned supervision meetings throughout the semester. Assigned readings, field work logs and a culminating research paper/project will be required.
