Students receiving credit for the internship in Child Development and Family Living will complete 300 hours for 3 semester hours.

Past Practicum sites have included:

Students must earn a grade of A or B or the required practicum must be repeated. Letter grades are assigned by the faculty supervisor. With faculty supervision, students make arrangements for appropriate practicum placements while enrolled in the pre-practicum course.

The final placement decision depends upon agreements between the student, faculty supervisor and an agency representative.

Practicums are completed in the senior year, during the spring semester. Practicum sites should be related to the student's career interests and objectives.

Child Development and Family Living students have had successful practicum experiences at diverse sites in the local community as well as in the metropolitan areas of Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas.
