Practicum in Social Work

Letter from the Director

Welcome to Field Education!  The experience you earn during an internship is a valuable tool that allows social work students the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and values related to the theoretical perspectives covered in the academic classes. Field Education allows students to explore the variety choices open to social workers and provides a safe environment for growth and experience with populations. We work with agencies that offer a multitude of services to individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations.

All social work students are required to purchase a TK20 account prior to their first semester in field. Below is the link to the TK20 Social Work Support Website where you can locate the link to purchase the program
