Practice what you learn in a professional setting
Upon acceptance into the graduate program students are eligible to participate in a practicum program elective for 7 credit hours. This Practicum program elective is voluntary and functions upon the advice and consent of the faculty for which application must be made. The course facilitates a professional office experience for those students who may not have worked in an office and would benefit from exposure to the activities of a professional working environment. The specific opportunities and venues vary and are chosen by the faculty of the School of Architecture, Art and Design.
Principle objectives for this course are specific to the venue and involve business type and formation, construction observation, project structure and process, as well as community involvement and public meeting process.
The venues may provide opportunities that are domestic or international and may be with for-profit or not-for-profit entities.
