This handbook has been developed to help partners in field navigate through this important phase of the Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) education, especially the student interns. It does not preclude your need to be familiar with the policies as found in the MSSW Program Student Handbook, and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Graduate Catalogue; however, it is hoped that this handbook will help you feel more confident as you prepare and begin your field practicum.
