The Council on Social Work Education describes Field Education as the “signature pedagogy” in social work education. Social work students engage in scaffolded practice under the guidance of skilled practitioners in community settings, while also being immersed in their studies. Through required field coursework, BASW and MSW students have the opportunity to connect and apply theoretical concepts in the field with the benefit of reflective seminar curriculum led by knowledgeable faculty. Students are able to gain perspective and understanding of the challenges and strengths of organizations serving rural and Indigenous communities. Many students state that their field experience and their relationship with their internship supervisor was a critical factor in their professional development.
