Overview of Field Education

Field education is a critical component of a social work education.  The Social Work Department at Brigham Young University – Hawaii requires its B.S.W. students to complete a single block placement of at least 425 hours at a social service agency.  That placement, or internship, is completed during a student’s last semester, after all required social work courses have been successfully completed.  Please refer to the Field Practicum Manual for policies and procedures regarding field education.
