In addition to taking foundation and concentration courses, you will complete field education courses, too. These courses will help you to develop expertise in a specific area of social work and will prepare you to put your classroom skills to practice in agency settings.
Field of practice courses: In addition to a concentration, you’ll choose a specialized field of practice — Child and Family Welfare, or Mental Health — to develop your expertise in a specific area of social work. Your electives will address topics like substance use, human sexuality, as well as race, class and gender.
Agency-based education courses: These courses are designed to complement and support your agency-based education placements. As you learn and master new techniques, competencies and concepts in the classroom, you will also start applying them directly to your work with clients.
