Field Requirements

Prior to beginning any field placement, all students will be provided the opportunity to attend a Field Orientation session. These sessions are mandatory and will be offered to both students and their supervisor (field instructor). These orientations typically occur in the first week of classes and can be counted towards internship hours for that week.

Field orientations provide an overview of the internship requirements and an opportunity for questions and answers. Topics include: getting started, how to develop your learning agreement and the importance of quality supervision.

BASW DL students will be provided a live online session for their Field Orientation.

MSW DL Students will receive on-campus Orientation to Field during the January Intensive, in addition to a live online session the week prior to beginning their field placements.
