MSW students attend Virtual Field Fair 2021 April 12
The master of social work programs of Augsburg University, St. Catherine University, St. Thomas University, and the University of Minnesota have partnered with a plethora of agencies to provide students with an excellent opportunity to prepare for professional social work practice. Each year, the Spring Field Fair gives MSW students and agencies the chance to informally meet, exchange information, and arrange for full internship interviews at a later date.
This year, Saint Mary’s MSW students had the opportunity to participate in the virtual field fair.
