Issues Principles Fieldwork

LENGTH: 15 weeks
REQUISITES: Prerequisite Or Corequisite: SSWK-145 minimum C
This course is designed to introduce first year students to the purpose and structure of the SSWK fieldwork experience referred to as "practicum." Students are introduced to the concept of experiential learning and its value in the learning process. Students and faculty explore the idea of praxis-the linkage of theory, skills, and practice-and discuss ways of achieving this through the practicum. They examine articles that explore various aspects of social service practice. Students are introduced to a range of social service agencies in the community and will then be interviewed for a practicum placement in SSWK 186 or SSWK 196.
