What is a Field Placement (or Practicum)?

A field placement or practicum provides the student with the opportunity to put theory into practice. Knowledge, experience, and skills can be applied, and passions and aspirations can be leveraged to further develop academically, personally, and professionally. In addition, a placement opens doors to make new contacts and explore possible career paths.
