The FSU College of Social Work is proud to offer one of the finest field education programs in the country. Prior to beginning their field practicum, our students complete a high level of academic preparation and classroom skill development. In their foundation year they receive instruction, which enables them to apply the necessary knowledge, skills, values and ethics to an entry-level practicum experience. However, it is the practicum experience itself, which truly tests their ability to apply this knowledge and skill to the real world of practice.
Our entire academic program is highly dependent on our ability to provide students with a quality field experience that fully prepares them for their social work career and the social work profession in general. Without field educators who dedicate themselves to this goal, we are not able to adequately fulfill this mission. Therefore, it goes without saying how appreciative we are of the endeavors of our field partners in the education and preparation of our students and how much we value your active participation in this valuable process.
The Dean, faculty, staff, and students of the College of Social Work thank you and continue to welcome your involvement in our program.
