Field Instructors

Field Instructors play a visital role in social work education. Employed by the community agencies providing internship experiences, they provide direct supervision to students placed in their agencies.  Field instructors are required to have a BASW (1 year post graduation) to supervise BASW interns.  Field instructors are required to have an MSW (2 years post master's) to supervise MSW interns.  Licensure is not required for supervision.
