Social Work Program Admissions

Hello! Thank you for your interest in the Social Work Program.  We have a comprehensive major consisting of 66 credits including courses taught within and outside of the social work program.  Courses in the program include an introduction course, two policy courses, two research courses, an elective course and the junior year cohort courses.  In addition, our program has a 450 hour senior internship where students get the opportunity to practice within a community setting.  Outside of the major courses are ones which contribute to student understanding about diversity, the human body, and inter-personal and systemic life influences.

If you are a new freshman or transfer student, you can declare the social work major at any time, however, before beginning the junior year courses you must complete the formal social work admissions process.  Admission interviews are held each spring semester, and students are sent information by Maureen Rappley-Larson, Social Work Program Coordinator. You can also see additional information by clicking the links below.

We are happy to provide you with information about the Social Work Program and develop a draft advising schedule. Please contact Maureen Rappley-Larson.
