Supplemental Information for Bachelor of Social Work

Students may indicate an intention of majoring in social work at any point during their academic career. They may consult with social work and School of Community Service advisers regarding degree requirements at any time. However, formal acceptance into the social work major occurs only after completion of the designated pre-major courses and submission of a formal application for admission. Students must have at least a 2.25 GPA to apply. Application to the major should occur by midterm of the semester in which pre-major courses are completed. The number of available slots is limited, so admission may be restricted. An application form and instructions are available in the social work office.

Pre-major courses include: SOWK 1450 and 2430, SOCI 1520, BIOL 1110/1115 and PSYC 1630.

The Bachelor of Social Work degree requires a minimum grade of C in all social work courses, except for SOWK 3800 and 4810, which require a minimum grade of B.

Students in the program may select a minor in consultation with the student adviser.

Graduate Degrees

Although a major in social work is not offered at the graduate level, graduate courses in social work are offered and may be taken as supporting work at the master's or doctoral level. Descriptions of social work graduate courses may be found in the Graduate Catalog.
