Field education is a core component in all social work degree programs. The 60 days of this first placement, the fortnightly classes and peer support and accountability groups provide a forum in which to explore issues concerning the integration of practice and theory, the development of core social work practice knowledge, skills and values as well as opportunities for support and consultation with other students and Faculty staff. Written assignments and oral presentations allow students to demonstrate their placement learning.
