The undergraduate residential student is required to attend at least one Field Experience Workshop out of three offered each semester prior to the semester they intend to take a field experience course. At this time, they will be informed of all policies and procedures with respect to internships/practicums. Additionally, each student receives the Student Internship/Practicum Agreement form within 3-5 business days after attending one of the three required Field Experience Workshops. Graduate residential students and all LUO students locate pertinent information regarding field experience courses from the SADA microsite. These students are prompted to correspond with the Faculty Internship Advisor, Prof. Christopher Phillips, for additional information regarding the Student Internship/Practicum Agreement, field experience approvals, registration deadlines, and registration assistance. Every Spring semester the SADA Department reviews the effectiveness of the policy and its attendant procedures. Procedures are developed and amended by the SADA Department Chair, Todd Smith, and the Internship Director and Coordinator, Christopher Phillips. Field experience policy revisions are submitted to the Dean of the School of Visual and Performing Arts for approval. Compliance with all procedures is mandatory.
See course syllabus and SADA microsite for all guidelines.
The implementation date for this syllabus revision was Fall 2017.
