The Community Practicum: Students making an impact in their community

The community practicum requirement allows Human Development and Family Studies seniors an opportunity to work for 150 hours at a site of their choice in the Lubbock community with the goal of gaining valuable hands on experience that will allow them to see firsthand how lives are impacted in a real world, professional setting in an area of the field that is unique to their career goals.

Practicum Placement Sites

The following is a list of approved community practicum sites for HDFS 43l4. Contact the practicum instructor if you are interested in doing your practicum at a site that is not on the list.

Some sites require a criminal background check for all volunteers. If your practicum site requires a background check but does not provide this service, please contact Dr. Scott at jean.scott@ttu.edu.
