COUN 9085 - Practicum in School Counseling


fall 6 cr./spring 6 cr.
A two semester, 600 hour practicum in elementary, secondary or dual sites, depending on desired license(s), provides public school counseling experiences. Students manage counseling caseloads, participate in guidance activities (student evaluations, delivering school counseling curriculum, articulation with colleagues, scheduling), and meet weekly with their on-site supervisor. During required on-campus seminars, students present cases, discuss site issues and professional practice standards, review legal and ethical issues, and critique assignments. Three faculty visits allow student and on-site supervisor consultation facilitating professional growth and completion of licensure paperwork. Students must consult with the Field Placement Coordinator in the Spring semester before beginning their placement.

Students must consult with the Field Placement Coordinator one semester in advance of their expected placements to begin arrangements. Prerequisite(s): Stage 2 approval and all coursework.
