Practicum Hours

What are practicum hours?

  • The LPC and the LMFT programs at Texas Wesleyan require practicum hours, which are hands-on experience hours, to complete the programs. Our practicum hours allow for both on-campus and off-campus experience.

Where do I complete my hours?

  • On campus hours are completed at the Glick House, Texas Wesleyan’s community counseling center, and off-campus hours are tailored to your specialty, like, for example, in a hospital setting.

How many hours do I need?

  • Professional counseling students need 350 hours – which account for the last two hours of the program, and Marriage & Family Therapy students need 525 hours – the last three classes of the program. Want to complete both programs? You will also complete 525 hours.

When do I complete my practicum?

  • You’ll work with a faculty member to develop your practicum hours, which you will complete at the end of the program.

Are these the same hours as the 3,000 hours required by the state?

Smaller. Smarter.
