Practicum Education at KU
What is practicum education?
BSW and MSW curriculum requires practicum education, or internship, with practicum placements in agencies throughout Kansas and Missouri. The Practicum Education Office works closely with students and agencies to secure an enriching practicum experience. Every effort is made to locate a field placement within a one- drive from the student's home.
Practicum By the Numbers
“Well-administered practicum education builds strong justice-grounded practitioners. As the director of practicum education, I will support KU practicum instructors and students as they endeavor to enhance individual and communities’ well-being."
The Margo Awards are named for Margaret Schutz Gordon, professor emeritus who served with distinction as professor and director of Practicum Education at KU School of Social Welfare from 1970 to 1983. Thank you sincerely to all of you who took the time to nominate your student, field instructor or preceptor.
