The Bachelor of Social Work program offers field placements as part of Social Work education. The placements give students the opportunity to use the training they have received so far to develop skills as a social worker under the supervision of an experienced Social Worker.
Near completion of the 300-level courses, the student submits a formal application for admission to the Field Practicum. Please consult with the Department for an admission application packet. The application materials are to be completed and turned into the Department Office, Swart Hall 230 by the announced due date. Only those who are formally admitted will be permitted to enroll in the 400-level courses.
