Fieldwork Requirements

Fieldwork Requirements

Your Master’s program requires a minimum of 600 practicum hours. You will receive supervised training and practice the core competencies of professional psychology while simultaneously completing the accompanying online courses. Under the guidance of professionals in the field as well as faculty supervisors, you will apply skills gained through your online learning and residency.

Fieldwork Settings

You will work with Capella faculty to identify a practicum site within your community. Fieldwork sites and supervisors must be approved by Capella to ensure all program requirements and accreditation standards are met.

Fieldwork settings may include, but are not limited to:

  • Social service organizations (e.g., alcohol and drug treatment facilities, community mental health centers, foster care agencies)
  • Schools
  • Private practice settings of an approved supervisor
  • Hospitals
  • Nursing homes
  • Non-profit agencies (e.g., homeless shelters, literacy programs, rape and abuse crisis centers)
