Social work students entering into field practice are required to contact one of our social work advisors to discuss your interests and possible placement options.
In selecting a field practice setting, the Social Work program considers:
- Availability, appropriateness, and effectiveness of services provided
- The interests and qualifications of agency personnel
- Settings that engage in generalist social work practice
- Willingness to commit the necessary resources of physical space, supervision, and practice opportunities
