Students in the Social Work program will learn from faculty with decades of clinical, administrative, research, and teaching experience, in a supportive yet rigorous academic environment. Coursework in the major begins in the junior year and focuses on the development of foundational skills for effective social work practice at the baccalaureate-level upon graduation, and/or enrollment in a graduate program in the helping professions.
During their senior year, social work majors will complete a year-long, supervised field placement, which allows students to apply classroom concepts in a real-world environment, while also helping students build a strong resume and professional network as they near graduation.
