Field Practicum Experience & Manual

The field practicum is an integral part of the MSW program. It provides a real world experience for students to learn and demonstrate mastery of social work skills. Multiple placement opportunities are available nationwide, including hospitals, schools, mental health centers, family service agencies, hospices, correctional facilities, programs for the elderly, children's services, and substance abuse programs. Integrative Seminar classes further assist students in merging classroom and practicum experiences.

The first year of the program includes a 16-hour-per-week field placement while the second year includes a 20-hour-per-week field placement at a different location – both placements chosen by the student.
