As part of the Bachelor of Addictions Counseling degree at IWU, each student will be required to complete a practicum experience whereby you will engage in on-site learning via an agency or center focused on addictions practice. This practicum will provide opportunity for you to receive constructive feedback and continual supervision as you gain experience in a professional counseling setting. Your practicum will also be done in conjunction with four online courses, ADC 471, 472, 473, and 474. These courses allow students to have additional input from an IWU faculty member (conducted via web-video for an hour each week) in addition to their field supervisor. Students may also enjoy the opportunity to share field experiences with classmates as well as present cases to obtain input from both faculty and students.
