Professional Practice

Professional practice opportunities allow students to connect what they learn in the classroom with practice in a professional/community environment.


  • gain understanding and experience to improve their professional skills;
  • establish networking contacts to support their transition from school to work; and
  • reflect on ethical responsibilities in diverse communities.

Examples of professional practice opportunities include (but are not limited to):

  • internships in businesses or non‐profit organizations;
  • student teaching;
  • artistic performances; and
  • significant course‐based projects that involve public contexts.
