MSW Field Education eligibility & requirements
Do you meet the eligibility requirements for NAU’s MSW Social Work Field Education program?
Field Education is an important part of the Social Work learning experience, and it is vital that students are fully prepared to make the most of the opportunity. The following guidelines set the ground rules. Our Field Education faculty help match qualifying students with the best placements for them.
- Be prepared as most placements will ask for an interview.
- In Arizona, you will need to show proof of a Level One Fingerprint Clearance Card. State requirements may vary.
- The Field Instructor, who will serve as the mentor and instructor at the student’s field education placement, must be an MSW with at least two years post-graduate experience.
- Placement at current place of employment is not a guarantee and requires an additional Employment Based Field Placement application.
