A field experience is a practice-based experience where students participate in components of a discipline or profession through the hands-on application of disciplinary concepts. Field experiences typically occur under the direction or supervision of a faculty member or a non-licensed professional. This type of experience is primarily intended to support professional and discipline-based competency development, but is not required for professional licensure or accreditation. Experiences where students are only observing professional activities (e.g. field trips) are not considered field experiences in this context.
