2021 Master of Social Work Field Fair

The master of social work programs of Augsburg University, St. Catherine University, St. Thomas University and the University of Minnesota will host the 2021 Field Fair, and will present it in a new and innovative fashion—VIRTUALLY!

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. Our four schools have partnered with a plethora of agencies to provide you with an excellent opportunity to prepare for professional social work practice.

The Field Fair is scheduled for Monday, April 12, 2021, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., offered virtually through links set up by each agency. The Field Fair is NOT A TIME FOR ACTUAL INTERVIEWS. The interviewing period runs from Tuesday, April 13, through Friday, May 7, 2021.
