Field practice provides students with the opportunity to integrate classroom knowledge to practice skills. Students are placed in a social service agency, government or non-government, under the individual supervision of a fieldwork supervisor. During this period, students have the opportunities to familiarize themselves with the functions of the service delivery system and begin to develop skills of social work practice and to test their ability to relate meaningfully to people in a helping situation.
This second field placement helps students achieve grater competence and independency in service delivery upon graduation. Every effort is made to expose student to a variety of settings and methods of social work practice according to his/her learning needs and areas of interest.
