Field Education

You’ll develop professional skills and competence in practice.

Field education teaches students to apply the theory and knowledge learned in the classroom to social work practice in agency settings. You’ll work directly in human service agencies—with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.

All internships are assigned by the field education department, and you are expected to comply with the policies and procedures of the department as noted in the Field Work handbook (PDF).
