BSW Field Education

Each student will be involved in two placement experiences. It is typical that one experience occurs in a rural area and the other in an urban setting.

The final decision regarding placement of students rests with the BSW Field Coordinator.

The procedures associated with setting up and completing field placements and the expectations and evaluation of these experiences are presented in the BSW Field Manual.

To provide field instruction to a BSW student, social workers must have completed a BSW and have 2 years post-BSW social work employment experience.
