Field Education Reception, 2023 Outstanding Field Educator Nominees

Field education is an integral part of our MSW curriculum.

Students complete their field education by participating in supervised placement experiences at agencies or institutions that have entered into a contractual arrangement with the School of Social Work. We are affiliated with more than 600 agencies, some with multiple sites, providing a variety of social work settings.

Field education allows students to apply the theories, skills and values they learn in class in practice settings. Through field education, the foundation of knowledge that students gain through their coursework comes alive through real-world experiences, preparing them for the social work profession.
