TAKE EDUCATION INTO THE COMMUNITY 

WHERE SOCIAL WORK COMES ALIVE!

HeritageHouseAt OSU College of Social Work, undergraduate and master’s students contribute almost a half million hours in service to Ohio’s underserved, disadvantaged and poor.

Field Education is where you will put your classroom learning into practice, engaging with other social workers, and developing your professional identity.

Field Education has been identified as the signature pedagogy of social work, by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Signature pedagogy is the method by which a student learns their profession; for social work, that is in field education.

But signature pedagogies also do more; they disclose important information about the personality of a professional field — its values, knowledge, and manner of thinking, almost perhaps, its total worldview.
