Practicum experiences are an essential part of the HESA curriculum. During the second semester of their first year and first semester of their second year, HESA students venture out beyond their graduate assistantships in higher education and student affairs, and complete two practica (one 98 hour assignment and one 140 hour assignment) to further their experiences in the field. These experiences are another means for students to consider the relations of theory and practice, and to better understand the many functions and services that different college and university offices, as well as other organizations, provide to students and other stakeholders.
