    Provides 500 hours of directed field learning for seniors majoring in social work. A field placement in a public or private human service organization provides the opportunity for students to relate theories and principles of social work to generalist practice with appropriate supervision and MSW consultation. A concurrent, on-campus seminar is also required during the Fall semester, and meetings are scheduled with the instructor during the spring semester. The seminar is designed to strengthen the student's experiences as an individual, family, group, or macro systems change agent. The weekly seminar does not count toward the 500 hours of field experience. Students must complete a total of 12 credits for the major. The course is taken in two consecutive semesters of 6 credits each (SSW441, taken twice). A grade change to the first course may be required upon completion of the second course to reflect final work.ÂÂPermission required. ÂPrerequisite:ÂÂSSW 332.ÂÂOpen only to BSW candida
