2020-2021 Accelerated Undergraduate Catalog

HSV 310 Agency Field Practicum II

The field experience course is designed to give students practice opportunities in the delivery of human services to diverse settings within social services agencies. Fieldwork provides an environment and context to integrate the knowledge, theory, skills, and professional behavior that are currently being taught in the classroom. As such, this course integrates skills and knowledge from previous courses and applies them through classroom discussions, role-play, and presentations to practical applications within the field. Through agency observation and class discussion, this course is a beginning opportunity for students to explore and refine their understanding of human services while establishing personal and professional future goals. Students are expected to complete a total of 200 hours between three field placements. (1 credit for each)

Specific to Field Practice IIThis course focuses primarily on the student's learning and interactions in the agency.  Attention is given to the role of “supervision” as a learning process, as well as understanding types and usage of human service organizations. This course synthesizes agency policies, systems, case management, and organizational behavior within the framework of helping agencies.

HSV 310 is the second rotation. Students are expected to complete Part II in their “Field Experience Binder” as well as complete 80 rotation hours within two different population agencies.
