Examples of areas of concentration include topics such as Leadership and Management, International Development, Education, Public Policy, Community Health and Wellness, and Program Evaluation. Practicum Supervised field experience is a critical component for the learning and development of each CDA student. The purpose of the practicum experience is to allow each student the opportunity to apply foundational community development principles and coursework and to build professional skill sets in meaningful settings. Most frequently, these experiences take place in off-campus organizational or public agency settings, but they may also take other forms. Over some summers, the Department of Human and Organizational Development offers opportunities to participate in a Fieldschool of Intercultural Education, which can also be counted toward practicum requirements with prior approval. Final Assessment Options CDA students are required to complete, at a minimum, 30 hours of coursework, 300 hours of practicum work and one of the following three final assessment options: Master's Thesis - This is an experience in independent scholarly research which is intended to contribute to the field of community development. Click here to see examples of past theses. Final Project - This opportunity allows students to integrate CDA core philosophy, coursework and field experience. The student will communicate meaningfully how these three elements are related and how they have contributed to their personal and professional growth during the project's life span. Click here to see examples of past student projects. Comprehensive Exam - This is an in-depth writing experience intended to display the student's full understanding of the material covered by the CDA degree program and to encourage the student to think critically about this material. Each final assessment option provides the student with a different method of expressing what they have learned and how to apply it. Each student should speak with their major advisor upon matriculation to discuss which assessment option is appropriate. Because the thesis and final project options require a great deal of preparation, a student must plan to stay in the program for four semesters; LINK students and those graduating in three semesters must choose the comprehensive exam option.

In order to offset the cost of graduate education tuition, many School of Education courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening, and/or on alternating weekends. Most students find they can maintain a full time job while earning their credential, master’s or doctoral degree. However, if your program requires you to spend time in a classroom (i.e. student teaching) or to complete a fieldwork or traineeship experience, such commitments will interfere with a normal workday. Please consult your intended program of study for more information.
