A Preliminary Look at International Students in MSW Field Placements at Nonurban U.S. Campuses
Zunz, Sharyn J.; Oil, Karen R.
Journal of Social Work Education, v45 n1 p131-137 Win 2009
International students are a valuable asset to MSW programs and deserve faculty support. However, sustaining international students in their field placements can be especially challenging for programs in nonurban settings. This article begins a discussion of what might enhance such students' field internships by reporting the experiences of the authors and some of their colleagues, examining the literature, and assessing survey responses from a small sample of field coordinators. Issues surrounding communication, transportation, and cross-cultural competency are explored. (Contains 1 table.)
