Community Counseling Services
Practicum/Internship Requirements
Community Counseling Services (CCS) works closely with several Universities (i.e., MSU, MUW, Ole Miss) and a variety of departments (i.e., Psychology, Counselor Education, Family & Human Studies, Social Work) in an effort to offer students field placements as they pursue careers in the mental health field.  CCS has a designated number of practicum/internship placements that we will accommodate each semester. In order to be considered for a practicum/internship placement, students must be able to validate that they are enrolled and receiving course credit as part of their program of study and be required to complete a minimum of 100 hours during their placement.
For those individuals interested in being considered for a placement with CCS, the first step is to submit the following 2 items to
  • Current resume that outlines relevant work/volunteer experience, as well as, relevant course work completed to date
  • Cover letter that summarizes practicum/intern requirements (hours required, supervision requirements, etc.) and highlights particular areas of interest
For those students that we are interested in considering for a possible placement and slots remain, the HR Department will contact the student to set up a time for a pre-placement interview.  Please note that ALL practicum/internship requests are processed through the HR department for ANY CCS program or location. Placements are also contingent upon the successful completion of the background check process.
