Field Experience in Human Services

This course provides students with the opportunity to be engaged in a field experience which will require them to apply the knowledge they have gained from their previous classes focused on human services course content, theory, and research methods. Students are required to take the course, followed by the Field Experience II course, over their senior year, three credit hours during the fall semester and three credit hours during the spring semester. Both courses are primarily aimed at an academic objective: applying theory to experience. This is accomplished by having each student conduct a research exercise while working at an internship within a selected agency in the community, and by having students react to fellow students' research within the classroom setting.
