SWK 651 - Practicum II

4 credits

651 (Practicum II) and 652 (Practicum III) together provide an in-depth advanced practicum experience for MSW students in a designated concentration.  Students complete both of these practicum courses in the same community agency/organization under practice supervision of an approved agency field instructor and academic guidance of a faculty field liaison. Practicum II and III build upon the more generalist-focused Intermediate Practicum I and deepen the integration and application of social work knowledge, values, and skills for advanced practice.  Students engage in these advanced practicum courses while enrolled in the required concentration courses.  Students spend a minimum of 600 hours in a setting that provides services and allows students an opportunity to engage in experiences that support mastery of all ten core competencies as operationalized by advanced practice behaviors.
