Josef Korbel School MA students who have been accepted into the program as returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) Fellows are required to complete a Practicum as one of their graduation requirements. An overview of the Practicum can be found in the MA Handbook available via the Home page.
To submit your proposed Practicum experience for review by the Office of Student Affairs, complete the Peace Corps Practicum Application.
If you have specific questions about the Practicum requirement or process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I'm an RPCV Fellow do I have an internship requirement?
No. Your internship requirement is waived unless you opt to complete a certificate with an internship requirement. You do need to complete a 75-hour practicum. RPCVs have the option to register internships through the Office of Career and Professional Development.
Where can I compelte my Practicum?
All practicums must be completed within the United States.
How do I know if my Practicum will be approved?
Please refer to the MA Handbook available on the Home tab for details.
Is there a pre-approved list of Practicum sites?
No, every practicum is reviewed and approved on an individual basis. A sample of previous sites can be found in the MA Handbook.
Is it possible to substitute an Internship for the Practicum?
It’s not possible to substitute an internship for a practicum, but frequently students combine them, completing 150 hours for the internship and 75 hours for the practicum.
In this case, a student would need to register the internship with OCPD via KorbelCareers and the Practicum with Student Affairs, and fulfill both program's requirements.
A student might want to do this if he’s/she's seeking 0-5 credits for the internship (available to RPCVs who started summer 2014 forward), applying for a funding award, or completing a certificate requirement.
I'm a Sie Fellow and RPCV. What are my requirements?
In this case, students follow the RPCV Fellow requirements (ie, language requirement is waived, practicum is required).
