Practicum in Intercultural Education

PART OF: Diploma in Intercultural Education

Course description

The practicum provides a unique opportunity for Intercultural Education students to integrate theory with practice in an intercultural setting. This experience is intended to provide students with an opportunity to apply learning in a practical setting and to develop awareness of further opportunities for study and professional practice. The practicum encourages valuable “hands-on” experience that will compliment theoretical knowledge by putting concepts learned in the Intercultural Education program directly into practice.

The practicum will consist of at least 50 hours of activity for a 1.5 unit practicum, and 100 hours of activity for a 3.0 unit practicum of either volunteer work in a multicultural setting with an approved agency, institution or organization, or of practical experience suggested by you in an approved setting.

Course code: IET 400
