Welcome to the Office of Field Education!
Field placements expose students to the broad field of social work, as well as to a wide range of experiences. The internship experience is directly related to classroom learning and serves to synthesize theory and practice. Through this experience, students gather more information about their commitment to social work values and ethics and their professional identity. Becoming a professional social worker demands that a student embark on an exploration of challenging theories, complex analyses of policies and programs and self-examination as he or she uses new information to deal with the complex problems presented in professional social work field education. The Office of Field Education is dedicated to providing the highest level of field education experiences for our students and supervisors. We welcome you to visit our field site and contact our office if we can provide any additional information.
