Experiential Learning Clinical Education

At Barry University School of Social Work, Clinical Education provides an opportunity for students to gain real-life, hands-on work experience in social service agencies and organizations. Through this lived experience, students are able to practice the integration of social work knowledge, theories, values, ethics, skills, and techniques in work with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities.

In collaboration with Clinical Education staff and administrators, students are able to select from a wide range of practice settings (i.e. children and families, mental health, substance abuse/addictions, hospitals, veteran’s administration, skilled nursing facilities, criminal justice, schools) the appropriate agency match to complete requirements of their Clinical Education courses.
