Curriculum Note: Practicum courses require student teaching in the community, in addition to course work. NWTC faculty arrange practicum settings for/with students. Students are required to complete student teaching in each practicum placement. Only one practicum course may be taken in any semester. Students are required to achieve a grade of "C" or better in the practicum courses to continue in or graduate from this program. Failure to pass a practicum course on the second attempt, the student will be removed from the program. Read more about Practicums online.
