The Professional Practices Residential is the second residency experience, which can be taken after the student’s second term.
Students work in teams to develop solutions to a significant real-world problem. Teams research and collect qualitative and quantitative data; analyze findings; formulate and select a proposed solution; and create a formal presentation utilizing acquired skills and techniques. The real-world issue may be developed in partnership with a business or not-for-profit venture.
The residential represents, in part, a cumulation and test of concepts learned in core courses and applied in integrative labs. It will help prepare students for their capstone work in the program’s final term.
