               ADVANCED STANDING STUDENTS WHO WILL GRADUATE IN WINTER 2015

 

As part of your MSW program, you will be required to participate in Field Education.  Field Education will be an opportunity for you to apply social work knowledge, values and skills learned through course work in a real world setting. 

 

Advanced Standing students complete 660 hours of Field Education over two consecutive semesters.  On average, you can expect to spend approximately 21 hours each week at a Field Education agency.  

 

All Advanced Standing students both full and part time intending to graduate in winter 2015 will begin Field Education II in fall 2014.  For these students, Field Education Applications are due to the Field Education Office on Friday, May 16, 2014.   Prior to applying for Field Education, you must attend a MANDATORY Field Education Orientation that will present information on the process of applying and interviewing for Field Education.    Listed below are the dates and times for three Field Education Orientations, please send an email to Professor Debbie Ronk (ronkd@gvsu.edu) to RSVP for one of these Orientations.
