Wartburg West Participants

Field Experience for Certification in Education or Social Work
Students receive full-time academic credit for the field experience plus whatever seminar their department requires. The supervision and seminar instruction are provided by adjunct faculty contracted by the college for this purpose. Students also take a 1/2 credit course, Urban Lifestyles, taught by the program directors, which meets weekly and includes the other Wartburg West students.

Internships in Fields other than Education or Social Work
Students work in their internships three days per week and receive two credits. In addition, they take a one-credit course that fulfills an Interdisciplinary (ID) requirement, and a another one-credit course that fulfills a Faith and Reflection requirement (see course descriptions here).
