Social Work Field Education

ASU’s social work students receive field education to apply their social work knowledge, skills and values learned in the classroom to real-life situations with clients in the field. Students are able to observe the benefits and challenges of working within various organizational settings with diverse client populations.

Students are supervised by a professional social worker or related-degree individual in the agency who serves as the field instructor and by a field faculty member (the field education director) at the university. 

This dual perspective is intended to facilitate the integration of classroom learning with agency-based practice and provides support to students as they engage in this dynamic process.

Additionally, field agencies often benefit from the presence of a social work field student; however, the primary focus of field education is on the learning process for the student.
