1. Apply to USP! The application requires an essay about why you are interested in the Social Work Emphasis (SWE).
  2. Read through the Practicum Site Descriptions and other resources on the website for more information about the SWE and opportunities.
  3. After acceptance to USP, complete the online Placement Questionnaire.
  4. The USP Social Work Coordinator will email you about 6 weeks before your arrival in Uganda to request any further information.
  5. The SW Coordinator will utilize the information from your application essay, placement questionnaire, and email discussion to inform the final placement decision.
  6. During USP orientation, you will meet with the SW Coordinator to discuss the organization at which you have been placed.

Feel free to email the Social Work Coordinator (uspsocialwork@gmail.com) at any point in this process.  If you are taking a pre-practicum course at your home campus that requires more information about your placement, email the SW Coordinator.
