Mentored Field Practicum (3-4)
Course Level: Undergraduate
This course for students in the Washington Mentorship Program or Gap Program includes two parts: the professional component, a two- or three-day per week work experience to give students hands-on, "real world" experience; and the academic component designed to help students learn to reflect analytically on their work experience in relation to their professional and academic goals. Through written assignments, analysis of readings, lectures, class discussions, individual meetings with the instructor, and presentations, the academic component provides a framework for structuring the students' experiential learning. Usually offered every term. Prerequisite: admission to the Washington Mentorship Program or Gap Program.
