The student is expected to participate at their field agency placement two days a week (16 hours a week). The student is expected to carry a caseload of 3-5 cases in order to implement interventions integrating advanced theories and interventions on all levels: micro, mezzo, and macro. Students will be prepared for autonomous advanced social work practice. A seminar will be offered in conjunction with the field practicum. It will facilitate the process of integrating social work knowledge, skills, values, and a liberal arts base into a set of practice competencies necessary for the performance of advanced social work practice. The seminar will meet one and one half hours per week for sixteen weeks.
