Guidelines for Fieldwork Experiences


The Fieldwork Experience is an important component of the Applied Disability Studies Certificate Program. During this time, the student begins to apply theoretical knowledge to the realities of the professional field. In addition, the student must demonstrate professional competence sufficient for the awarding of the Certificate. The development of high quality Fieldwork Experiences requires cooperation and coordination among site personnel, the University Fieldwork Instructor, the Fieldwork Experience Site Supervisor, and the student. It is the purpose of this document to facilitate cooperation and coordination by clarifying the roles and expectations of those involved in the Certificate Program field experience.
