This catalog is a comprehensive listing of placement sites for UCI School of Social Ecology students seeking to complete their field study (SE 195) degree requirement. Students are encouraged to begin looking for an appropriate placement site early in the quarter preceding the quarter in which they plan to do their field study. UNLISTED SITES WILL NOT BE APPROVED FOR PLACEMENT DURING THE CURRENT ACADEMIC YEAR. Sites that are interested in establishing a field study placement with the UCI School of Social Ecology are encouraged to apply. Applications are available under "Site Supervisor Info". Sites that apply in the current academic year, will be evaluated and if approved will be added to the catalog for the following academic year.
Field placement sites are divided into ten areas: corrections, counseling, environmental education, health, legal services, planning, police, public policy, schools, and senior services.
