Course Description

To fulfill the requirements for the MA degree in Program Evaluation, students must complete 12 credit hours of practicum (PSY 889) over the course of two semesters. Practicum involves working alongside evaluation practitioners in a professional evaluation setting, applying the theory, methods, and practice skills learned in the classroom. This course prepares students for the practicum in two ways. First, the course is designed to guide students through the process of securing a practicum placement, and second, it teaches students to think critically about ethical challenges and action when working in the evaluation profession.

By the end of the semester students will have:

  • Developed a compelling resume and cover letter
  • Identified and made verbal contact with potential practicum sites
  • Interviewed for positions at potential practicum sites
  • Selected a site and identified an on-site supervisor to oversee your practicum experience and evaluate your performance
  • Negotiated terms for the practicum with the on-site supervisor and submitted a draft learning contract to instructors
  • Provided on-site supervisor with draft of learning contract
