SUST 650 - SUMMER PRACTICUM
The summer Practicum acts as a fulcrum, pivoting the program from its First-Year focus on theory to its Second-Year emphasis on practice. Students will be guided into internships or fieldwork opportunities that will help them develop their understanding of how sustainability is implemented, in ways which help prime their thinking about their own second-year Capstone experience. This course takes the form of supervised fieldwork, and must serve to underscore the criteria of the triple bottom line, in that the activity engaged in must simultaneously consider ecological, social, and economic variables. The (typically) four-week internship will be book-ended by one week of reading-intensive preparation and one week of writing-intensive reflection. Each Practicum must entail a minimum of 150 formal work hours, supervised by MASS faculty, or by pre-approved faculty from within the Ramapo College community, or, in special cases, by guest faculty drawn from the broader MASS social network. The course will meet on a weekly basis, apart from the actual internship or fieldwork experience, so as to ensure adequate on-going feedback and guidance by faculty. Digital conferencing will be used in cases where students are working abroad or are otherwise away from Ramapo. Students will prepare and maintain a Field Journal, to track their progress through the experience, and completion of the Practicum will be marked by the preparation of a reflective de-briefing report which lays out the experience and the learning embodied by the internship or fieldwork.
