SSCI 4098U – Practicum


The practicum is an experiential learning tool that provides students with opportunities to acquire workplace skills and knowledge, confront the relationship between theory and practice, and cultivate a sense of personal and professional development. The course consists of 100 hours of fieldwork, several in-class seminars, and a set of academic assignments. Participation in the Practicum course is contingent on the successful completion of the Pre-Practicum course (SSCI 3098U , winter semester of third year). As part of the pre-practicum process, students will be expected to acquire a Vulnerable Sector Screening. Students are matched with community organizations based on the goals, interests, and learning outcomes identified in pre-placement interviews (verbal and written). In consultation with a designated fieldwork supervisor, students design, manage, and receive feedback on a series of self-directed workplace goals and objectives.
