At UNI, learning outside-the-classroom is just as important as your time on campus. In social work, that means a required field placement as part of your program. This experience will help you build your resume, and help hone in on your preferred population to support (children, adolescents, aging adults, families, etc.).

We have partnerships with agencies locally, across the state, nationally, and even internationally.
