Fieldwork Placement

Supervised field experience is an integral part of the educational program and professional preparation. It provides an opportunity to integrate academic knowledge with application skills in a clinical or community work situation.  Experiences on fieldwork require progressively higher levels of performance and responsibility.   

Fieldwork 1 placements are short-term assignments that occur in conjunction with other coursework during each semester, generally located within or nearby the campus communities. Fieldwork 2 experiences occur back-to-back at the end of the didactic program; two 3-month assignments are required for degree completion.  The majority of FW2 sites are located within Texas and the states surrounding Texas.  Due to the high nationwide demand for fieldwork placements, students are not guaranteed both local FW2 placements.  Effective September 2011,  students admitted to the program should expect to complete at least one Fieldwork 2 experience outside  the greater metroplex  areas of Dallas-Fort Worth or Houston.
