Explorations in Psychological Practice

Explorations in Psychological Practice is a service-learning capstone Honors Seminar and provides students opportunities to interact with participants in programs provided by schools or human service agencies; to understand personal reactions to experiences with people different from themselves; and to learn the benefits of civic engagement. The service learning component consists of a practicum placement in a school or human services agency from 6-8 hours a week. Students write 5 papers, complete an assessment of their practicum and receive feedback about their supervisors at the end of the semester.
