The practicum component of the program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for Social Service work. The success of the field practicum is dependent upon the cooperation and investment of the students, the community agencies and the Practicum Instructor.

We value the contribution of the Practicum mentors and supervisors as they provide an integral part of the students’ learning. This is where practice and theory come together!
