MSW advanced track students complete this one latter internship only; advanced field, consisting of 540 contact hours. Regular track students complete a first-year field practicum while concurrently enrolled in other classes. In the second year, full-time advanced standing students complete field practicum, SOWK 5378 and SOWK 5979, during the spring term. Part-time students will complete their field courses in two semesters. The first semester students will complete SOWK 5378  and SOWK 5379.
