Information for Students

The field placement process in the Social Work Department at Brigham Young University – Hawaii is a cooperative effort between the student and the Director of Field Education.  In the semester prior to their field placement, students are required to take SOCW 490 – Practicum Preparation Seminar, during which they will be taught how to secure a field education placement, will learn what is expected during the student’s internship, and will be prepared to begin their internship the following semester.  The following documents can assist students in preparing for their field education placement and will be reviewed in more detail in SOCW 490 – Practicum Preparation Seminar:
