Students seeking practicum credit or dissertation experience can come to the Center with interest in a specific project or faculty member’s research portfolio. Practicum or dissertation students are typically PhD candidates who are required to complete a number of fieldwork hours within their area of focus--such as epidemiology or health literacy. Practicum and dissertation students complete a learning contract before their experience begins, clearly outlining their expectations, hours they will devote to the specific project, and anticipated deliverables. Students seeking dissertation experience will likely be working with a specific faculty member who may be a member or chair of their dissertation committee.
