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
