SW 460 Field Placement Seminar I

2 Credits

The internship is the pinnacle of the social work program at Neumann University. The internship experience is meant to be the culmination of course work, self-reflection and developing perceptions of what it means to be a culturally competent generalist practitioner in the social work field. The primary purpose of the field experience is to integrate social work theory with practice. Students will intern a minimum of 400 hours in the spring semester of senior year at a social service agency under the direct supervision of an approved intern instructor and an assigned faculty liaison from Neumann University’s Department of Human Services. Students will practice generalist  social work skills and apply their knowledge and professional values. Through adherence to the BSW internship manual, students will critique their emerging professional social work practice skills and identity.

Prerequisite(s): SW 100
