Each student completes 600 hours of practicum and 300 hours of internship.
The integration of coursework with experience in the field is a William James College institutional hallmark. Consistent with this focus, practicum and internship work is an essential aspect of the PsyD curriculum. Throughout the program great care is exercised to match students with experiences that will enrich and enhance their classroom learning and promote their professional and personal development. The PsyD in Leadership Psychology offers courses that guide and help the students apply theory in real world situations and in doing so refine their understanding of the work in the field. Whether a student uses her/his own workplace, works at a William James College practicum site, or finds a client site on their own they are provided a mentor to assist them in furthering their competency development. Practicum/internship mentors are experienced organizational development psychologist practitioners working within William James College or at the Practicum site organization.
