SOWK 498A: Social Work Internship I: Fieldwork is offered online by Point University. In this capstone experience for the Bachelor of Social Work, students practice generalist social work competencies under the oversight of a Point instructor and a qualified field supervisor, demonstrating their ability to integrate theory into practice. Students are responsible for identifying potential sites (preferably near their home) and inquiring about internship opportunities. The field supervisor must be a licensed social worker who holds a bachelor’s or master’s degree in social work from a CSWE-accredited program, has a minimum of two years of post-social work degree practice, and currently works full-time in the profession. Both the site and the supervisor must be vetted and approved by the CGPS Social Work Program Director two sessions (16 weeks) prior to the start of the internship. Point faculty assist with arrangements once the supervisor and site are confirmed. To receive credit for SOWK 498A Social Work Internship I: Fieldwork - SOWK 498B Social Work Internship II: Fieldwork, students must complete 400 hours of field education working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities (approximately 25 hours per week over two 8-week session). Toward this end, specific training models are designed by the student and program director in cooperation with the supervisor. During SOWK 498A Social Work Internship I: Fieldwork - SOWK 498B Social Work Internship II: Fieldwork, students also complete the BSW Generalist Social Work Capstone Portfolio Project, which includes a reflection paper and supporting documents that display the extent to which the student understands and can apply the knowledge, skills, and values of generalist social work practice.
