At Worcester State University, we understand that the best learning includes doing. That’s why we offer practicums that give you hands-on field experience. We partner with dozens of Worcester-based organizations where you can hone your skills in challenging, real-world settings and have a positive impact in the local community. As a public health student, you will complete at least 120 hours of community-based service at one of approximately 30 sites in Worcester. If you minor in health fitness, you may complete an optional practicum of at least 40 hours.
In addition to this valuable and rewarding field work, you also may take part in faculty-led research or complete an independent study on a topic of interest.
