Practicum Program Description

USD's Wellness Area practicum program is currently accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. We hope to move forward with the program as usual pending updates related to COVD-19.

The University of San Diego Wellness Area's primary focus is the provision of educational, developmental, preventative, consultative and clinical services to students in order to promote their academic success and holistic development. The Wellness Area works toward this end as a team of professionals using a variety of approaches, styles, methods, and programs designed to empower students to accomplish their developmental tasks in a positive learning environment. We recognize that our ability to be responsive to the needs of the University community and the community at large is based on a continuous commitment to organizational integrity, professional development, and personal growth.  Services provided to students include walk-in sessions, intake/assessment, individual, couples, group counseling, testing/assessment, outreach/consultation, academic counseling, and referrals as needed to the community.

The University of San Diego has approximately 8,100 students, 5,400 of whom are undergraduates. Majors are offered within colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education. In addition, graduate degrees are offered in business, law, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and counseling.
