Redefining what's possible.
Welcome to the School of Social Work Field Education Program.
Field Education is the signature pedagogy of social work education. This is the central environment where students integrate the intellectual contribution of the classroom and practice experience—the integration of theory and practice.
Field Education allows students a supervised and supportive learning opportunity where they can master and synthesize social work knowledge, values and skills. We work closely with community agencies and organizations to ensure there is consistent content that complements classroom theory and research with students’ practice experiences.
Our goal is to facilitate the mastery of competencies and practice behaviors to support the goal of independent autonomous practice. Your field education experience is the cornerstone of your professional social work education.
