Practicum Courses (NAST 386) are guided work experiences that enable students to link theory and practice. They generally consist of a project undertaken for or in collaboration with an organization. It is not expected that you will be paid for the work although the organization may cover your expenses and provide a modest honorarium.
Students must have taken at least 10 full courses and have a B average or 73%. Normally NAST 381H/NAST 383H should be completed prior to the practicum. Practicum Guidelines
