Field Placement

Your field placements are an important part of your Human Services education.  It is your chance to put into practice the knowledge and skills you have gained at Northcentral Technical College.  Each field experience is unique and is meant to broaden the student's knowledge of individuals, groups and/or families.  Agency settings may include but are not limited to child welfare, AODA services, adult and aging services, mental health, family services, and other human service programs. 

The agencies available for field placement vary from semester to semester.  The student will complete 144 hours of field placement at an agency as well as 18 hours of additional coursework (lecture or classroom discussion for example).  

Field 1 and Field 2 are available each semester: Fall, Spring and Summer. Application forms for field placement are mandatory and must be completed the semester prior to the start of the field placement.
