Field Placement (CHSUG3006)

Field education provides an opportunity for the student to apply the academic content from other courses studied in a direct practice context. Students are assisted in learning the skills required for effective community and human services practice as field education provides experiences that allow the student to make the transition from "knowing what" to "knowing how". Students will complete 250 hours of supervised fieldwork practice in an approved human services agency. For most students, this field placement is the culmination of their course of study and the final preparation before entering the field. In this way, there is an expectation that during the course of fieldwork placement, students will attain a level of professional practice equivalent to that of a new worker in the field.
