How many hours must I complete in field placements?

Students in the two year MSW program must complete three field placements of 300 hours each. Advanced standing students must complete two field placements of 300 hours each. This is a requirement of all MSW programs that are accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Seminar classes and related learning experiences count toward the total hours.
Students should expect to spend 18-20 hours a week in agency work during the Fall and Spring semesters, and approximately 24 hours per week in the Summer semester.
