About the Practicum

The Sixth College Practicum is an upper-division, 4-unit general education requirement that embodies the College’s commitment to active, hands-on learning. Students enroll in courses that have an experiential, service-learning, or community-based component to the curriculum. 

Find out more about which courses you can use to fulfill the Practicum!

Are you looking to fulfill your Practicum requirement? Want to take an awesome, interesting CAT class over the summer? Look no further and take CAT 124: Curating Film with Pacific Arts Movement in Summer Session I! If you're interested in film, music, or art, take advantage of this incredible opportunity to help organize and operate an international film festival held in Balboa Park this summer for the park's centennial! This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to not only be a part of this extraordinary event, but to help run it from behind the scenes--and to meet local filmmakers, learn about filmmaking, and get academic credit too!

Take CAT 124: Curating Film with Pacific Arts Movement in Summer Session I!

If you're interested in taking this class for your Practicum, submit a proposal for CAT 124: Curating Film with Pacific Arts Movement online at http://sixth.ucsd.edu/practicum/proposal/index.html. Contact the Practicum Advisor Jeanne Monahan through the Virtual Advising Center at vac.ucsd.edu or Professor Amanda Solomon Amorao at alsolomon@ucsd.edu with any questions!

Practicum Spotlight
Great options for your Practicum!

"I feel very strongly that CAT Practicum is the epitome of what Sixth College is about. Culture, Art and Technology are what this college prides itself in and students won’t know the true meaning of those three words until they put themselves out there."

-CAT 198: Ethnicity, Education, and Empowerment student, Spring 2013
