All students in the Counseling Program are required to complete an internship experience working in the field under the supervision of a practicing counselor. This is a vital component of counselor training. Multiple prerequisite courses are in place to prepare students for their internship, and the experience itself is structured in a way that supports and scaffolds student learning.
The internship is directly preceded by enrollment in and successful completion of all practicum course requirements. The practicum experience includes 100 supervised clock hours with weekly supervision sessions with the faculty supervisor. Completion of the practicum is based on successful demonstration of counseling skills and appropriate profession practice.
