Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Field education is an exciting and integral part of a student’s journey through our social work programs. It provides opportunities for students to put social work skills, knowledge, and values into practice in an approved community agency and under the supervision of an experienced social work Field Instructor. In the field, students gain lived experiences with: critically reflecting on their use of professional self, examining the influences of diversity, identifying opportunities to promote social justice, advocating for policy and systems-level change, and applying social work ethics.
Our Office of Field Education is set up to assist students through every step of the process from searching for and securing a placement to supporting their success throughout the duration of the field placement. In the semester prior to entering the field education courses, students will attend an information session about field education and be paired with a member of the Field Team who will help guide the search process for a field placement.
