SOCW 840 - Generalist Social Work Field Practicum I

This course is the first of two field practicum experiences that students are required to complete during the foundation year of the MSW Program. This course provides social work majors with supervised learning experiences from a licensed social worker within approved social welfare agencies. A practice course accompanies this practicum in order to enable students to integrate and apply classroom learning in the field setting. An ethno-cultural practice perspective is emphasized. Students work closely with the Field Practicum Director to identify their preferred practice population, preferred agencies, and the geographical area where they want to complete the practicum. Students are required to begin this practicum experience the same week that other MSW courses begin in the fall semester. A minimum of 240 hours of field practicum experience are required during the fall semester.
