Field Work

Field instruction is one of the most valuable and exciting aspects of this program. You will:

  • Link what you have learned in the classroom with practice experience in the workplace.
  • Spend an extended amount of time in a wide range of practice settings, gaining the experience you need for a career in social work after graduation.
  • Broaden your abilities and understanding of social work and improve your readiness for social work as a career.

Junior year, you will complete a field experience of six hours a week, totaling 144 hours.

In your last semester at Nazareth College, you will receive the most intense and rewarding field instruction experience by working in a human service agency four days a week for a minimum of 420 hours total.

The faculty of the Social Work Department is available for any help or guidance you may need during your studies.
