A practicum is a college course, often in a specialized field of study, that is designed to give students supervised practical application of a previously studied theory. Practicums (student teaching) are common for education and social work majors.

It is also called work placement, especially in the UK.

The process resembles an internship; however, the latter is often not part of the school program.
