Senior Field Seminar is a required course taken in conjunction with SWK 450 during the senior year. The course provides a platform for students to identify social work competencies experienced in the social service delivery system. The emphasis in the Field Practicum I experience is acclimation to organization structure, clientele, direct practice skills, interventions, documentation, agency and social welfare policies and community resources. Students will demonstrate acquisition of these competencies through research, presentations, documentation, processing and problem-solving. Discussion of experiences in the classroom setting allows students to develop and strengthen a sense of professional self. Senior Field Seminar is the first seminar course in a concurrent sequence.
