Social Work Internship Expo a Success

On September 26th, the semi-annual Social Work Internship Expo was held on the Bloomsburg University Campus in the Kehr Union building. Internships and field work are key elements of the Social Work major at BU. 

Social work students engaged in dialogue with agency representatives and were able to learn about the services offered to various clients. Social work students also learned about a variety of potential volunteer, internship and job openings at these social service agencies. The next social work internship expo is being planned for Spring 2013 in conjunction with Social Work Month in March. Contact the department of Sociology, Social Work and Criminal Justice for details!
