CN 786 - Practicum in Higher Education Counseling & Student Affairs

Semester Hours: 3
The Higher Education Counseling & Student Affairs practicum is a one-semester, 125-hour minimum, supervised counseling experience within the context of a higher education/student affairs placement. The course is designed to help students integrate and apply the knowledge, skills, and dispositions learned in previous program coursework. Students are expected to have an opportunity to both observe and serve in individual and group counseling or presentation sessions with a minimum of 50 hours of direct service with actual students involving assessment, intervention, and evaluation where appropriate to the placement. Audio or video recordings are often used to develop skills in conceptualizing cases and selecting and implementing appropriate interventions. The application of ethical and legal issues in higher education counseling and student affairs is reviewed. The course culminates in an evaluation of each student’s knowledge, skill, and dispositional performance throughout the practicum.
