HSERV 263 - Human Services Field Experience 2

3 credits

This field experience, which accompanies HSERV 262 Methods in the Helping Process , requires nine hours a week in a human services agency or school where students continue to perform tasks related and essential to the service offered by the agency. Under the supervision of a professional human services worker, students further develop intensive communications skills such as interviewing, recording, case presentation, and the referral process. Students learn to understand their own feelings and attitudes so they may better differentiate between the personal and professional self. Students maintain written records of their activities which are used in the linked seminar as a basis for classroom discussion.

Notes: All students registering for this course must fill out and submit a Human Services Field Application (PDF) . Submission instructions appear at the top of the application.


For Fall 2021, all field classes will be held remotely and if/when possible, in conjunction with placements in agencies.
