Field Education and Seminar
Field Education and Seminar occurs during the fall and spring semesters of the senior year. The social work field experience includes an internship for students at selected human service agencies two days per week (Tuesday and Thursday), and a weekly seminar class on an alternate day. Students are required to complete an internship that consists of 440 hours (220 hours per semester) in selected public, nonprofit, and for-profit human service agencies. Students employed in human service agencies will not be allowed to use their employment as a substitute for their field education placements. All students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all required social work courses in order to graduate with the BSW Degree.
SOWK 444 - Social Work Field Education and Seminar I is offered in the fall and SOWK 445 - Social Work Field Education and Seminar II is offered in the spring. Applications for field education placements must be submitted during the spring semester of the junior year. Failure to submit an application will result in students not being considered for field education. Students who do not satisfactorily complete Field Education and Seminar forfeit hours earned and must reapply. Incomplete ("I") grades are not given for this course. Students who are readmitted to Field Education and Seminar are assigned to new agencies.
