Academic residencies, skills labs and pre-practica are virtual and/or in-person learning experiences that align with your online coursework to enhance your skill development, scholarship, and professional practice. These experiences also provide students with the opportunity to collaborate and network with other Walden students, staff, and faculty members.
Residencies, skills labs and pre-practicum events are held virtually throughout the year, and for select degree programs and levels, may be offered in select major cities around the United States. Academic residencies, skills labs and pre-practica are required for most doctoral programs and some master's programs.
At Walden, we are committed to providing you with an exceptional experience. Whether you are attending one of our virtual events or a face-to-face residency, skills lab or pre-practicum, you will benefit from personalized attention and superior student service as we help you achieve your academic goals and satisfy your program requirements.
