Practicum in Child and Youth Care
Units: 1.5 or 3.0
The supervised field placement is designed to provide CYC students with an opportunity to apply their skills working with children, youth, families and communities in a supervised setting. Placements which involve individual, family and/or group counseling, can only be undertaken with qualified (i.e. Master's level) supervisors, and require a minimum commitment of 300 hours (3.0 units). Those students who have not completed a practicum as part of their undergraduate degree will also be required to enrol in the 3.0 unit course. Regular contact with the course instructor and consultations between the student, placement supervisor and instructor will be required.
Students registered in the 1. 5 unit course will be required to complete a minimum of 165 hours. Students registered in the 3.0 course will be required to complete a minimum of 300 hours.
Note: Students are normally required to complete 13.5 units of coursework before registering in 553.
