Field education is an integral part of the online Master of Social Work (MSW) program. Both traditional and advanced standing learners begin working with real clients in the field soon after classes begin. This allows learners to spend the maximum amount of time applying the skills they are gaining in class, while exploring how they best want to serve their communities.
To facilitate field education opportunities, the online MSW at the Graduate School of Social Work has partnerships with agencies across the country that share in their core values and meet their high standards for practice. Placement specialists are available to help learners find field education opportunities at faculty-approved agencies near their own area.
