CFS493 Youth and Family Practicum: The Global Workplace (Fall, Spring)

Open only to human development and family science majors and minors who have committed to an internship by the published deadline. This course is aimed at helping students to become aware of the ways in which the practical world of work differs between and among cultures. It will concentrate on the processes of job finding, acquisition, organizational entry, organizational socialization, and effective performance in the student’s chosen occupational field. Students registered for this class will seek and normally engage in an internship (work-based learning) in London and will attend a weekly class in which they explore topics aimed at furthering their understanding of work and career from intercultural, transferable skills, and career building perspectives. This course must be taken for a letter grade. Internship placements typically require a two-day per week commitment.  Other students register under BUA 400.1/MUI/RAE 408 (Newhouse students: see special notes in the BUA 400.1 course description).
