FCS 2020 Field Experience Enrollment Guide

How do I plan a Field Experience?

How do I find a position that fits the course requirements?

How do I enroll in the course?

  1. Obtain a position which fits your major’s requirements.
  2. Determine the number of credits you wish to earn for the semester. Ask your supervisor to assist you in estimating the hours you’ll be able to complete in the enrolled semester.  Your position must offer the opportunity to complete at least 100 hours in the semester in which you plan to enroll. A maximum of three credits (300 work hours) may be earned in a semester.
  3. Download and complete a department approval form:
  4. Obtain approval signature from your work supervisor on the FCS 2020 Department Approval form. This signature indicates that you have discussed course requirements for work hours and employer evaluations with your work supervisor.
  5. Obtain major faculty signature on the Department Approval Form indicating approval of the field experience site. Be prepared to discuss your job responsibilities, work schedule and how the position relates to your major.
  6. Submit typed hard copy of completed Department Approval Form with all signatures to Dr. Frazier. You will be registered for the course after all steps are completed.

Please note that it is not possible to self-register for this course. Registration deadlines for each semester are noted on the approval form, and must be strictly adhered to.  The class meets twice per semester in spring and fall semesters and once in summer sessions. You must attend a mandatory orientation session for each enrolled semester, where course requirements are explained.  Fall and spring enrollees must also attend a final meeting. Dates for all required meetings are noted on Registration form and in GoWMU course schedules.
