LA 101 First Year Field Experience


1 cr.

Course Description

Linked with First Year Seminar, this learning beyond the classroom experience exposes first year social work students to the realities and complexities of the actual workplace. Working with such populations as the elderly, developmentally challenged, children in foster care, and school age children, students explore the development of professional relationships and the challenges often faced by social workers. Enrollment in First Year Seminar is a corequisite. The course may be used to meet one unit of the General Education requirement of Learning Beyond the Classroom.
