Welcome and congratulations as you approach the final stretch of your formal social work education: Field education, a classroom without walls.
Field, as the signature pedagogy for social work education provides an opportunity to learn and demonstrate professionalism, strong professional boundaries, a teachable attitude while experientially integrating classroom knowledge.
Field can be exciting, fun, and most likely will be the most challenging aspect of your student experience with us. You are encouraged to begin this final stretch by spending quality time familiarizing yourself with the field education feature of our social work website. Undergraduate or a graduate student, each section is designed for easy access, efficiency, and innovation. This is our attempt to reduce the anxiety that is a natural aspect of your field education experience, a classroom without walls, while increasing the role of excitement and fun (yes, we said fun and field in the same sentence) through detailed information, a necessity as you take this pivotal journey.
Congratulations! We look forward to serving you.
