Academic residencies, skills labs and pre-practica are face-to-face or virtual learning experiences that align with your online coursework to enhance your skill development, scholarship, and professional practice. Residencies also provide students with the opportunity to collaborate and network with other Walden students, staff, and faculty members.
Face-to-face residencies, skills labs and pre-practicum events are held throughout the year in various locations around the United States and, for certain programs, virtually or in international locations. Academic residencies, skills labs and pre-practica are required for all 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 many face-to-face residencies, skills labs or pre-practica held in cities across the nation or participating in a virtual residency*, you will benefit from personalized attention and superior student service as we help you achieve your academic goals and satisfy your program requirements.
