Field education is the cornerstone of a successful social work practice. This program provides 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 that real-world experience complements classroom theory and research. Our goal is to facilitate the mastery of competencies and practice behaviors that support a successful social work career.
