The Junior Practicum Program provides third-year students with a unique and engaging opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills related to career readiness and research. 

This practicum program will kick off with a Career Readiness and Skill-Building Summit throughout the month of September and will involve a variety of faculty, staff, industry leaders, and alumni delivering interactive workshops on technical skills and professional development. Students who successfully complete the Summit will receive winter term project credit. Please note that this program is the only option for juniors to receive winter term project credit in the 2020-21 academic year.

Note: Students may select to participate in the Summit only for winter term project credit and not the experiential practice. Students who complete both the Summit and experiential practice are eligible to receive up to $800 for their work.
