Field Education: Introduction

Field Education at West Chester University's Undergraduate Program of Social Work is a required part of the curriculum. The goal of field education is to provide the opportunity for students to integrate classroom content with direct practice, while establishing an identity within the profession of social work. The Field Education experience is concurrent with course work, and focuses on the integration of course content with the development of skill in agency work. Education objectives coincide with the field education and are sequential, building upon each other throughout the program. Students receive ongoing supervision, and engage in a continuous educational process through the assignment of a field education instructor.
