Practicums vary across industries and application areas. All are intensive, requiring each student to devote 1-2 days per week to client-facing work and to the 46x coursework. Class sessions take place on Saturdays, in San Francisco (not Davis), CA. Classes typically require assigned pre-class reading/watching, in-class assessment polls and quizzes , and one or more major activities followed by discussion.
