MSW Field Program

The requirements for successful completion of an MSW degree include a field education component. USF requires a minimum of 900 total hours of field placement. Full-time students are in field 20 hours per week for three semesters; part-time students are in the field for 12 hours per week for 5 semesters. USF utilizes a single field placement model which means that the student is placed in one agency for the entire 900 hours of field placement. Students are enrolled in a professional seminar concurrently with the placement to assist with integrating the full learning experience.
