Practicum & Internship
One of the primary experiences in the UHV Professional Counseling Program is the clinical coursework embodied in practicum and internship. These courses require students to utilize the knowledge and skills gained in the classroom as they provide services to clients or students. The primary objective of the courses is to provide experiences, consultation, and supervision to help students become effective counselors. Professional practice, which includes practicum and internship, provides for the application of theory and the development of counseling skills under supervision. These experiences will provide opportunities for students to counsel clients who represent the ethnic and demographic diversity of their community.
