The social work practicum is the capstone of one's social work education, in which students are placed full-time at a social service agency for hands-on experiential learning. The practicum allows students to utilize skills learned in class and apply them to real world social service experiences. Students complete 480 hours in the course of one semester as part of their practicum experience.
