International social work practice, theory, and policy greatly influence the profession domestically and abroad. The School of Social Work offers students several options to study abroad, providing them with the opportunity to learn about another country’s approaches and policies to service, conduct a comparative analysis on the different models of social work, and develop a sense of what it means to be a global citizen with insight into the multi-dimensional construct of internationalization.
Our current study abroad programs include offerings in China and Mexico. Learn more about past experiences and upcoming opportunities via the following links.
MSW students - interested in doing an international internship? We offer the opportunity to complete a social work field placement in Mexico over the summer, but students may also complete an international internship elsewhere. Students interested in doing so are encouraged to research their own field placement and fill out the Field Placement Abroad Proposal for review.
