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.

Practicum Spotlight
Great options for your Practicum!

“This past summer, I was given the opportunity to participate in poverty research practice, where my interest in health and well-being education and promotion could be translated closely to such an incredible summer fieldwork internship. This internship with the Blum Cross-Border Initiative was for my Sixth Practicum requirement but to also foster my growth and development in this field. Through the internship, I better understood the relationship between poverty, health, and illness on the local and international level of the San Ysidro and Tijuana border."
