SWRK 6720 - Field Education and Social Work Practice II

This is the second of two field education courses that entails two hundred and twenty eight (228) hours on continuing practice in a human service agency under the guidance of an agency social worker and a faculty member. Two field seminars are held during the semester. Field placement forms an integral part of the preparation of students for professional responsibilities in social work. Students continue to develop a working knowledge of the agency’s functions, structure, processes, and its service provider role within the community. Students improve their abilities to apply knowledge and develop skills in conducting interviews, problem identification, data collection, problem assessment, and goal formulation with the client systems in the context of social work values and ethics. Students continue to integrate self-awareness and appreciation of diversity into professional practice. The MSW field experience emphasizes generalist social work practice at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: SWRK 6610 or SWRK 6710.

Credits: 3 hours
