Welcome to Social Work Field Education!

Field education connects the contribution of the classroom with the opportunity to practice skills and integrate knowledge in an agency setting. The field education program offers BSW and MSW students a practice experience of quality and challenge in an agency setting under the guidance and field instruction of a BSW or MSW field instructor.

Student feedback indicates that the field education experience is valued as one of the most important elements in their social work education.

The generalist and advanced generalist practice opportunities implement the knowledge, values, and skills learned in the classroom as well as expanding practice skills that address foundation and concentration-level practice behaviors and competencies (pdf).
