NMP 690 — Field Experience I
Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy
The field experience consists of a minimum of 80 hours (per 3 credits earned) of applied management experience in a nonprofit organizational context. The field experience is designed to provide individuals with exposure to the field of nonprofit management in addition to direct experience in a specific department and nonprofit sector type. A seminar under faculty direction and supervision will accompany each field experience. The setting will be chosen in consultation with the graduate program director and the director of cooperative education. The experience may or may not be a paid position. Field Experience is strongly recommended for individuals who enter the graduate program with minimal experience in a nonprofit setting. Up to six credits of Field Experience may be applied as elective credit toward fulfillment of the M.S. in Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy degree requirements. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from their field experience.
