Field Education

Field Education is a core requirement of the BASW and MSW programs. It is an integrated course involving human service organizations, professional Social Work practitioners who are "teachers" in the field, and the faculty of the Division of Social Work.

Field Education provides the social work student with an opportunity to apply classroom learning in an agency-based supervised field experience.
