Student Opportunities and Services

Students studying

We understand that learning happens both inside and out of the classroom. That’s why we support a variety of organizations and programs that help you gain valuable real-world experience to better prepare you for success as a student and professional.


Hands-on learning opportunities

The School of Social Work also supports numerous opportunities for you to gain real-world experience outside of the classroom:

  • Field education for undergraduate and graduate students provide a way for you to get involved with a community organization, learn about a specific area of social work and gain valuable work experience.
  • The Teen Enrichment and Mentoring program provides after-school mentoring to youth ages 13-17.

Continuing education

We also offer several continuing education seminars for upper-level social work students, graduates of our programs and area social workers. These sessions cover current issues, such as girls in the juvenile justice system and play therapy.
