Application Procedure for Research Practicum (HDF 355R): TO BE ComPLETED 1 SEMESTER BEFORE PLACEMENT

Recommendation: Meet with your Academic Advisor early to discuss how the Research Practicum would fit into your academic plan.

Step 1: Be on the lookout for an email from SoHE Advising about Field and Research Practicums each semester. Typically, these emails will come in February and September. They will have a brief survey for you to complete. 

Step 2: Once you have completed the appropriate survey and have indicated your interest in a Research Practicum, then you will receive an email granting you access to a Canvas page that has more information and the official Research Practicum application with the deadline.

Step 3: You will receive an email once your application has been reviewed and your acceptance status has been determined. 

Step 4: If accepted, the Practicum Coordinator will email you to connect you with a research faculty member and will share details on how to register.

IMPORTANT: Please note that research practicum placements have become very competitive. Students are not always accepted or placed with the faculty member of their choice.
