Human Services Practicum
Students who stay in the Human Services major have the opportunity to complete a 90-hour practicum in the field, in which they work to obtain the first five standards of the Human Services profession. This is a personalized experience: as a practicum student, you’ll work one-on-one with LBCC faculty to determine the best placement for you.
Note, in order to enroll in practicum, you’ll need to start preparing about one and a half terms in advance. Talk with your advisor for more information.
