Prospective Student Information

Thank you for your interest in the California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) School of Social Work Field Education Program.

All of the School’s Field Education components meet the Accreditation Standards of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Field Education is an essential element of the curriculum in which students apply and deepen their knowledge, skills and values through practice. It also offers the opportunity for evaluation of the student’s ability to apply social work knowledge, skills and values by an experienced social work professional. We understand that the field education component of this degree program requires a time commitment that students would want to consider prior to applying for the program. We have included a list of the most commonly asked questions when considering whether the BASW or MSW program will be a good fit for you.
