This guide will assist you with your AFM 8200 course. Use the GOLD TABS to navigate the guide.
This course is offered as an alternative to the Practicum for students who have extensive workplace experience in a family life education. Consideration will be given to students who can demonstrate, through a portfolio of accomplishments, that they have five years of supervised, professional, full-time work experience in a human service agency or similar setting. Students will complete a capstone project that will be designed to meet a need of either the student’s current workplace or a selected human service agency and may include program development, evaluation or other research need identified by the agency. The student’s project will have a practical application and benefit to the host organization. Prerequisite(s): Faculty Approval
