SWK 465 Social Work Field Seminar II
3 hours, 3 credits
The second course of a two-semester sequence which continues to facilitate students' integration of the educational experience in class and the field. In addition, the field seminar is the capstone course in the social work program that synthesizes theory, research, policy, and practice methods. Students are to produce documents that combine research and analysis applied to practice in the field. Understanding of social work concepts and readiness/competency to begin the professional social work practice is the goal of the capstone course. Students will explore significant social work issues, bringing their experience and knowledge to bear on the interaction of their values and skills within the major. In consultation with the instructor, students will choose a major area of practice as a focus for the integrative project. Students will integrate their experience in this area with relevant theory, knowledge and skills, research, and evaluation. Students may choose between developing a poster presentation or a video/online presentation.
