We are interested in learning more about the needs of your agency or program. Our staff carefully match students with placements that fit their learning objectives. Please contact Nancy Chertok, Director of Field Education at 773.702.1178 to discuss field placement opportunities.

SSA attracts and prepares the most able social work and social welfare professionals in the field. Our students learn the most recent theories and practice of social work and social service. Your agency or program can complement their classroom instruction with practical work-place experiences. In turn, you will get the benefit of having intelligent, innovative, and capable students complement and augment your staff.

“It’s important to have transferable skills and to have a professional mentor. Working with [Assistant Professor] Alida Bouris has helped me both personally and professionally. She has encouraged me to mold my course schedule and placement to my interest and goals, to take risks, and she has helped me shape my vision of who I am in the social work world.”
