SOC-OFE Masters Students - Field Experience Manual: Field Experience at Multiple Sites

Field Experience at Multiple Sites

Requests to work with up to two field sites concurrently are subject to approval at the university’s discretion. Students who plan to work with more than one site concurrently for a field experience must include this request as part of their application submission, in compliance with all deadlines and other field experience policies.

Students requesting to work with two field sites will be required to:

  • Provide the rationale for working with multiple sites, if requested.
  • Describe the specific activities that will take place at each site in the Meditrek application.
  • Receive at least 1 hour of continuous weekly supervision by the Walden-approved site supervisor at each site where direct hours are accrued each week. Students do not need to attend both sites every week, nor do they need to have supervision at both sites each week, but they must have supervision with at least one site supervisor in any given week.

For additional details on the procedures for applying for field experiences with multiple sites, see the SOC-OFE website.
