Being a Practicum Sponsor

If you are visiting this web page, it is probably because a student in the Earth Life and Time program of College Park Scholars has approached you about supervising them in their Spring practicum.

For the internship or service project, one credit hour should entail at least twenty five hours of work on site, two credits should entail at least fifty hours, and three credits should entail at least seventy five.

We can work something out.

Thanks. We look forward to working with you.
