From the Director

Welcome to the College of Social Work’s Field Education website and to the heart of the social work curriculum.  Field Education is where social work happens!

You are about to embark on a challenging journey that will encourage you to think beyond yourself, to ask the most complex questions, and to try out your knowledge and skills in the arena of practical experience. As you struggle with ideas and practice skills, and test them in the real world, you will have the opportunity to explore, to grow, and to become well prepared for a career in social work. The College faculty, field staff, and agency field instructors form a partnership that will support you, challenge you, and help you become a professional social worker who acts compassionately, thoughtfully, and in keeping with the NASW Code of Ethics. We are excited to have you explore your passion through our many, and varied, field placement intern opportunities!
