Practicum Experience in Outdoor Programs – Course Description
The practicum experience provides a short-term, supervised opportunity for students to participate in leading an outdoor activity course or program. The practicum is the integration of academic preparation with its application in a field setting. The student may be assigned to a Department of Physical Education outdoor activity course, program or to an approved non-University program in order to meet this requirement. The practicum student must be directly involved in the program for a minimum of 30 hours. Students are required to purchase internship liability insurance to participate in the practicum. Contact University Insurance & Risk Management for details on acquiring the insurance and the current charge.
