Walden University refers to its social work internships as Field Experience (Field for short). Field Experience is an integral part of the social work program at Walden. The purpose of Field is to help our students integrate classroom learning and knowledge to real social work practice. Field gives students the opportunity to develop the skills and competencies that are necessary for professional social work practice.
Our team of professionals in the Field Office is committed to partnering with our students and community social service agencies to offer a valuable learning experience. We are dedicated to helping you grow as a student and professional.
