International Field Experience
Students have the opportunity to do an international field experience in India, Romania, or Uganda. Besides learning about and practicing social work within these countries, students can take selected college courses locally that will enhance their understanding and appreciation of their host country, including its culture and people. These courses apply toward graduation and program credit from Cedarville. While living among the local population and learning language and customs, students have opportunity to share God’s love and minister to these individuals and their communities.
India offers our students a unique opportunity to intern at a variety of social work practice settings such as medical social work, social work with population groups impacted by HIV/AIDS, social work with victims of sex trafficking, community health, or with disabled children. Students can take courses through Madras Christian College and will experience the culture firsthand by living on a traditional Indian college campus. Placement is available for juniors in the fall semester.
