Social Work students develop the ability to practice clinically with diverse, self-defined families and to partner with them to make skillful contributions to the family-community continuum. The program seeks to develop within each of its students the rich intellectual and ethical capacities necessary for skillful and compassionate social work practice.
With Radford University located in rural Appalachia, we offer coursework and internships focused on rural practice. However, for the student who wants practice experience that will lead to work in a city environment, we offer a selection of field placements in Roanoke–a midsize city about 45 miles from Radford.
Requirements for field practicum include: approved field application (available on the School of Social Work website), successful interviews with field coordinator and proposed field site; good academic standing; and proof of liability insurance meeting specified requirements. More specific information may be obtained from the Field Director.
The program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education
