Course Description for Field Education I
Field Education I
Description: Field education, the signature pedagogy of the social work profession, is integral to the education and professional socialization of social work students. Through field education, graduate students are provided a structured and supervised environment in a human service organization in which they apply theoretical knowledge, test and refine practice skills, and adopt professional behaviors. Field Education I, the first of two consecutive courses in the foundation year, introduces and allows students to apply the generalist knowledge and skills acquired through academic courses to social work practice with a specific client system.
