SOWK 4453 - Social Work Field Practicum

(16 credits)
Prerequisites: Senior status; Completion of all required major courses and General Education Core requirements; Overall GPA of 2.25 and a 2.5 GPA in required SOWK courses.

This is a one-semester-block field experience placement involving over 500 clock hours of educationally directed and professionally supervised social work activities in a social service setting in Appalachia. The student also is required to participate in regularly scheduled field integration seminars on campus. The practicum allows application of the theoretical knowledge, professional values, and practice skills acquired throughout the curriculum so students can build on these practice elements in order to progressively engage in various roles of intervention and to employ a variety of methods. The purpose of the course is to enable the student to further develop generalist practice skills and to integrate professional knowledge, values, attitudes, skills, and theory with practice.
