Practicum Program

The social work practicum is an intensive supervised field experience in a selected social work agency. Students spend an average of 15 hours per week for two semesters in the field under the guidance of a University-appointed field instructor. This service/learning experience is supported by a regularly scheduled process seminar that facilitates the integration of social work theory and practice.
