SCWK 498 - Field Experience in Social Work

(6 credits for each semester)
Prerequisite: Admission to the social work program; SCWK 320 and SCWK 338; consent of department; formal application required
The field experience provides opportunities for students to learn how to apply knowledge and to develop skills in direct services to clients under the direction of a qualified agency field instructor. A minimum of 410 hours is spent in a wide variety of community agencies from September-May of the senior year. This experience continues to build upon the practice sequence of SCWK 338, SCWK 431, and SCWK 432. A weekly seminar throughout the year allows students to integrate social work theory and practice into a unified whole as part of their development as beginning professional practitioners. This course may be taken twice for a maximum of 12 credits. Offered both semesters in fall-spring sequence. (CWRM)
