Application to the major and pre-major courses


The Bachelor of Social Work degree program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (1725 Duke Street, Suite 500, Alexandria, VA 22314-3457; 703-683-8080, ext. 205).

Students may indicate an intention of majoring in social work at any point during the early part of their academic career by declaring a pre-social work major. They may consult with social work and College of Public Affairs and Community Service advisors regarding degree requirements at any time. However, formal acceptance into the social work major occurs only after completion of the designated pre-major courses, completion of a term-by-term (semester-by-semester) course plan with the social work advisor, and submission and approval of a formal application for admission. Applications to the major are due on approximately the 30th calendar day of the term/semester in which pre-major courses are in process or are completed. Applications are accepted during the fall and spring terms/semesters only. The number of available slots is limited, so admission may be restricted. An application form and instructions are available in the department office. Students must adhere to the program’s course sequencing and prerequisite schedule. The 12-credit-hour block practicum is offered during the fall and spring terms/semesters and requires approximately 32–35 hours per week in an agency over the term/semester, for a total of no less than 480 hours.
