A practicum bridges the gap between education and industry and affords students the opportunity to explore career options through research and informational interviews. Students will prepare an employment search plan with instructor support and gain industry experience through a mentorship placement in a professional environment. These opportunities can include working with a freelancer, working in in-house corporate environments or working in advertising, marketing and interactive agencies. Upon completion students will provide a written reflection, and a final presentation and report on their work experience.
