Field Experiences

Field practicum is an integral and essential component of the BSW degree curriculum. Field practicum places students in agency settings and engages the student in supervised social work practice. It provides valuable opportunities to apply classroom learning in the field. CSWE mandates that BSW programs establish minimum standards for field supervision and that supervisors are experienced social service agency personnel, preferably with a BSW or MSW degree. This formalized supervision results in consistent high standards of quality. Through their field practicums, BSW students refine their professional social work skills and integrate classroom course content with on-the-job experience in service provision, outreach, networking and resource development.

Here are just a few places our BSW students have had the opportunity to complete their field placements. Click on the links to learn more about each agency.
