Welcome to the Office of Field Education!
Field Education is a cornerstone of all degree programs at Wheelock College.
Why Field Education Matters
Field Education is the primary vehicle for students to:
- Apply essential knowledge, skills, and behaviors
- Integrate theory and practice
- Foster meaningful career pathways
Students learn what it means to make a real difference in their lives as well as the lives of the people with whom they work, primarily in urban settings.
