Are you looking for a job? Or looking to hire a Mason graduate? 

Students in the BSW program are required to successfully complete 450 hours of supervised field practicum in agencies approved by the Department of Social Work. The Department of Social Work will make reasonable efforts to work with a student to secure an appropriate field placement, but it does not guarantee a placement.
