A Practicum could take the form of an internship (SUS 410), a faculty-sponsored research project (SUS 401), or be a part of educational experiences such as Faculty-Led Trips Abroad, Alternative Break Trips or other international educational experience.

Below are links to potential Practicum opportunities and internships, but feel free to explore other options. We encourage Practicum students to find an opportunity that engages and inspires, wherever it might be!
