Field education is the heart of social work education and its signature pedagogy, as defined by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the accreditation body for graduate and undergraduate professional social work education programs in the United States.
Field experiences that blend classroom education with exposure to real world situations help maximize student growth. Our field faculty are eager to partner with our field agencies and work with students to provide educationally sound practica that build on knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
We continue to implement procedures and ideas to help students and field instructors succeed in attaining optimal learning experiences. We are happy to answer questions and comments from students, field instructors and other community members.
We invite social worker professionals and agencies to join us in providing exciting practicum experiences. Please see our application to become a practicum site.
