How does field education work for the online option?

In your first year of study, the Field Education Department will place you with an agency or other site in the metropolitan area closest to where you live. You will be asked to fill out a field placement form, which, along with the work experiences indicated on your resume, will help the staff members in our Field Education Department determine your first-year placement site. In addition, they will assist with your transition to the field through a Preparation for the Profession Seminar.

NOTE: Your second-year placement is determined by your choice of method area (Advanced Clinical Practice, Policy Practice, or Social Enterprise Administration) as well as field of practice (Health, Mental Health, and Disabilities or Family, Youth, and Children’s Services), and you will have more input into the decision-making process.
