In order to begin foundation practicum you must have completed, or be concurrently enrolled in, all courses. If you are unsure about your readiness to begin practicum, please consult your faculty advisor.
Field education is an integral part of the MSW program. Students are required to take three field education courses and one field education seminar. Graduate Field Practicum I (SW5800 - foundation practicum), is a 300 hour/4 credit hour field education experience focused on generalist social work practice. Students also complete a two-credit hour Foundation Field Seminar (SW5801) course in conjunction with this practicum. Completion or concurrent enrollment in all foundation coursework is required before students can begin this field experience. Students must attend two foundation practicum planning workshops the semester prior to beginning the foundation practicum.
Graduate Field Practicum II (SW6800) and Graduate Field Practicum III (SW6850) are each 300 hour/3 credit hour field experiences taken in conjunction with classroom concentration coursework. Students select placements within the area of concentration (Family Practice, Social Work Leadership and Management or Gerontology) and in conjunction with their career goals. Students must attend a practicum planning workshop the semester prior to beginning the concentration field experience.
All students must have an MSW supervisor and must have passing grades in field placement to graduate. Students who lack either the intellectual or emotional aptitude for professional social work practice or who violate the National Association of Social Workers' Code of Ethics based on their performance in field practicum will be reviewed for possible dismissal from the program according to established policies.
