Get hands-on, practical social work experience in the field

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
