SOCW 845 - Generalist Social Work Field Practicum II

This course is the second of two field practicum experiences that students are required to complete during the generalist 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. Students will be concurrently enrolled in the SOCW 835 Generalist Social Work Practice II: Mezzo/Macro Skills course in order to enable the students to integrate and apply classroom learning in the field setting. Students are expected to use this course to build from the first field practicum course. An ethnocultural 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 spring semester. A minimum of 240 hours of field practicum experience are required during the spring semester. Once students complete this course and hours, they will have accumulated a minimum of 480 practicum hours to satisfy the practicum requirements to move on to the advanced year of the MSW program.
