Field Education

Field education integrates the theoretical and conceptual aspects of your learning to the practical world of social work practice.  In their senior year, students complete a30-hour per week, 450-hour internship at a certified social service setting working side by side by an agency field instructor.  We have established relationships with many outstanding social service agencies for field education placements.  Our Field Education Director will work with you to place you in an agency that will allow you to develop your specific practice skills and interests.  If you have questions about Field Education please contact our Field Education Director, Janet Holter at jlholter@viterbo.edu or 608-796-3724.
