SWK 754 MSW Field Internship III

First of two advanced year field internship courses. Students are placed in a social work setting that specializes in an area of disabilities – physical, neurological, sensory, developmental, alcohol/drugs, and/or mental health – for 24 hours per week for a total of 360 hours per semester. This field internship provides students with the opportunity to further integrate and build upon the knowledge, values and skills learned in the previous placement and to adequately prepare students for professional employment within the social work field. Students work under the supervision of a licensed MSW professional who provides guidance for learning in cooperation with the student's faculty liaison at the College of Staten Island. Advanced direct interaction with individuals, groups and communities from diverse backgrounds aid the student with integrating concepts and principles from the classroom into their field setting. This course is graded Pass/Fail.
Prerequisite: Admission to the Advanced Standing or successful completion of the first year curriculum.
