Fields of Practice Specialization

The School of Social Work requires Second Year, Advanced Standing, Accelerated, and Time Frame II One Year Residency Program students to choose a specialization in a field of practice (FOP). As a reflection of both our commitment to a social justice and human rights framework and the nature of the service systems where we do our work, the School has chosen the following five fields of practice specializations. Each of these areas is linked to a universal human right.

  • Children, Youth and Families
  • Aging
  • Health and Mental Health
  • World of Work
  • Immigrants and Global Social Work
