Field Site Requirements

Your field sites will need to offer experiences that meet the requirements of your program, as described in Section 3.

Practicum sites must

  • Have a current affiliation agreement with Walden that specifically includes your program. If an agreement is not already on file, the SOC-OFE will work with your chosen field site to establish one after you submit your application (see Affiliation Agreements);
  • Offer adequate space for students to see clients (see TMH and in-home policies);
  • Have clients to assign to students (students should not solicit their own clients); and
  • Allow students to record sessions (see Recording and Alternative Assignment Policy).

Note: Internship site requirements will vary depending on the domain.
