Field Dates & Calendar

The field education calendar is partially dependent upon the MSW program of enrollment.

Both years of the program, full-time students begin field placement in September and finish at the end of the spring semester.

Advanced Standing students begin field placement in the first week of July and finish at the end of the spring semester.

Part-time students have two different start and end dates for field placement:

  1. The Foundation (1st year) placement begins in September alongside the full-time two year students. In order to complete the required number of hours, students finish placement in the last week of June.
  2. The Advanced (2nd year) placement begins in early August in order to provide ample time to complete the required hours in the field. Students finish placement at the end of the spring semester, allowing them to graduate with their cohort.
