A member of the Field Office will contact you with additional information about the field placement process. We sincerely appreciate your interest in partnering with the MSU Denver Department of Social Work!

Our internships for the 2016-17 year will begin the week of August 22, 2016 and end the week of May 6, 2017.

Please note: Our students will begin contacting agencies to request interviews on February 15, 2016.

Students from various schools and programs may be contacting you for interviews before our February 15th start date. Our placement process is structured, and we make efforts to carefully place students based on the individual student and our knowledge of each agency. In order to provide your agency and the student the most valuable experience possible, we take time with the matching process and it is helpful to know ahead of time that agencies will reserve their decision making process until MSU Denver students have been able to connect and interview with their matched agencies.

Please keep our timeline in mind when navigating the field placement (internship) process!
