If most of us have already accumulated 900 practicum hours, why are we continuing with practicum activities at all?

Field practice is the hallmark of social work education. We at Columbia feel very strongly that it is critically important to sustain field learning as much as possible. At the same time, we recognize that these are NOT ordinary times. Hence we’ve made a number of adjustments and options available to you – as described below. While field continues, our expectations are being adjusted in response to current conditions. As always, if you are facing unique challenges in your own life, please do not hesitate to reach out to your Advisor and Field Director for clarification, support, and adjustments where necessary and where possible. We are ready to work with you.
