Social Work and Our Community

Student Opportunities

Each program within the WCHBS requires students to gain hands-on experience within their program of study.  These experiences provide students the opportunity to apply theory to practice and use those skills to enhance their knowledge base.   

  • Diverse Clinical Experiences: Students within WCHBS are required to complete clinical experiences, such as assisting social service agencies at the city, state or federal level, or training hands-on with patients, clients or athletes 
  • Undergraduate Research: Students have multiple opportunities to collaborate with faculty on diverse research projects in professional fields relating to social work and health-related sciences.
