Practicum in Human Development & Family Studies
Each fall semester, HDFS 450 (Practicum in HDFS) offers as many as 25 junior, senior, and graduate HDFS students a variety of supervised internship and related professional development experiences in Champaign-Urbana human service agencies and organizations. Each placement is structured to assure students learn and grow professionally with mentoring from both faculty and on-site supervisors.
- HDFS 450 practicum is one way to satisfy the HDFS undergraduate program's requirement for an "applied" course. Up to six hours of credit in HDFS 450 may be counted toward the 126 hours required for the B.S. degree.
- Students begin the placement process for their HDFS 450 practicum experiences at an organizing meeting early in the spring semester preceding the practicum. Learn more about the process and the kinds of experiences available: HDFS 450 course information
