Experiential learning settings (internships, practice, field placements) are no longer an educational experiment. They are found in secondary schools, colleges, and universities and are well established within departments of sociology (Satariano and Rogers, 1979). Furthermore, we can anticipate their expanded use in the future. Bradshaw and McPherron (1978) report in a national survey of undergraduate curricula that community college, four-year college, and university departments of sociology all expect to increase their use of field experience more than any other teaching technique.
