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. The application materials are to be completed online by the announced due date. Only those who are formally admitted will be permitted to enroll in the 400-level courses.
