Competitive Practicum Opportunities

The practicum assignment process does not begin until early November 2017, however, from time to time the Practicum Office learns of opportunities that fall outside of the established process and schedule which may be of interest to you.  These practicums cannot be guaranteed as FIFSW students will be competing with students from other academic institutions for a limited number of spaces.
