The ultimate goal of the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire's undergraduate social work program is to prepare students for entry-level positions in the field. A quality field placement, undertaken at the senior level, is essential to meeting this goal. Faculty liaisons work with both the student and the agency to ensure that this occurs. Students can choose between a block placement that consists of four days a week in an agency and occurs in one semester or a concurrent placement which occurs over the duration of two semesters and takes place two days a week.
The field placement provides a nurturing, educational environment in which the student can use the values, ethics, skills, and techniques acquired throughout the curriculum. By providing a practice experience in an agency setting, students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and expand it with important real life experiences. The following list includes a description of the field and the current placements available through UW-Eau Claire's internship program.
